I had a lot of fun creating these designs for a chic and modern wedding cake topper! I used some of my favorite script and sans serif fonts to create custom topper designs that can be found at the bottom of the post to download and use for your own cakes!

If you are creating your own designs, I recommend adding a stroke to the lettering or underscoring slender fonts with a thick line to make sure that the toppers can hold their rigid shape. The glitter cardstock offers a good base for a free standing topper, but adding poster board backing ensures a firmer and longer lasting design!
