Play Around with Shapes
While round or square tiered wedding cakes are very traditional, they are by no means your only options these days. As Real Simple suggests, you can use hexagons, cubes, spheres and more to make your cake whimsical and modern.

Use Stenciled Monograms
Forget those old-fashioned wedding cake toppers with the traditional bride and groom figurines. No thank you. If you want to personalize your cake to represent you and your spouse, Bride’s says you should try a monogrammed topper with your new initials, or feature a topper with the words “Mr. and Mrs.” to be playful. You can also skip the topper altogether and instead have your monogram featured using stenciled décor directly on the cake itself.
