Provide a decorative detail to your wedding cake by choosing a topper that fits the style and colour scheme of your big day. Butterflies are included in several wedding themes, such as spring weddings and garden weddings. Find a unique butterfly cake topper that fits your personal style and budget by considering all of the options before deciding.


Place a stunning, edible butterfly atop your wedding cake by having the baker make one out of chocolate, fondant, sugar or gum paste. Select from a variety of colour and style options. Bakers are able to create edible cake toppers in nearly any colour or shade you can imagine, and there are add-ons possible as well, such as edible glitter. Select an edible butterfly for an affordable cake-topper option; bakers may charge an additional fee to create the topper, however.


Decorate your wedding cake with one or more crystal butterflies. Splurge on a sparkly crystal butterfly for an elegant and unique wedding topper. Crystal butterfly figurines can be purchased in jewel-encrusted styles and in a variety of colours such as violet or multicoloured. If the budget allows, consider adding two butterflies atop the cake to represent the bride and the groom. Save the crystal butterflies to display in your home after the wedding.

Butterfly Topper Accents

Add butterflies to a more traditional cake topper to dress it up and make it fit in with your wedding's theme. Purchase small butterfly cake accents online; they are available in a variety of colours and sizes. Place them atop a monogram topper for an added detail. Use them above a floral arrangement cake topper for a garden-friendly theme. Another option is to order several and adorn the tiers with scattered butterflies throughout.

Floral Picks

Find a unique butterfly floral pick to top your wedding cake for an inexpensive cake topper. Purchase floral picks online or at a craft store. There are numerous options for sizes, colours, shapes and styles of butterfly floral picks; this option is one of the most versatile. Opt for a floral pick if you are looking for details. Floral pick butterflies tend to have more detailed markings and more vivid colours than many of the other topper options, such as edible or crystal toppers.
