Trend Alert: Fondant Letter Toppers

Quick Jump To » Comments

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Fondant Letter Toppers. Whether you use them as an initial or get all the letters of your name, these fondant cake toppers are certaintly wow factors!

At the forefront of this trend is Edible Details who has made the most creative fondant letter toppers I’ve seen yet! When I styled my Cute as a Fox party this week, I knew just who to call to create a set of Woodland Animal Fondant Letters to match my printable collection. Displaying these can be tricky, so let me show you how I styled a full name set and then ideas for displaying only initial ones.


Display Fondant Letter Toppers on Mini Cakes!

For my Cute as a Fox party, I wanted to display the guest of honor’s name on mini cakes as a centerpiece display on the dessert table. Displaying fondant letter toppers on individual mini cakes works really well when you have a short name. Here I displayed each letter for the name JOEY on top of fondant mini cakes made by Fancy Cakes that matched the fondant letters perfectly! Display them side by side so that the name is easily readable. How cute is this?!





Display Fondant Letter Toppers on Cupcakes!

If your guest of honor has a long name, ordering a single letter initial may be the way to go. For individual letters, you can display them on top of a regular cake or you could display them on top of cupcakes if you are serving cupcakes at your party. The fondant topped cupcake is best displayed in the front or on top of your cupcake display so it becomes a focal point. Of course, it would also be the special cupcake just for the guest of honor. For wide letters, like this Mermaid themed M fondant letter, I placed it on top of two cupcakes side by side.
