The latest wedding cake trend? Crown cake toppers, which give your wedding dessert an elegant and regal look. An antique crown or tiara is a beautiful and unique cake topper; or, you can likely find one on Etsy or BHLDN. Also, you could also ask your cake designer to fashion one from molded sugar. The crown will look chic and striking on its own, but you could also fill it with flowers for added embellishment. Whatever you decide, a crown topper is guaranteed to turn a simple dessert into a confection worthy of your own royal wedding.

Wedding Cake with Fresh Flowers and a Crown (above): This heirloom cake topper is actually the crown worn by the bride's grandmother on her own wedding day 55 years ago.

Crown Topper with Flowers: For a wedding with an enchanted forest theme, the cake designers at Premier Pastry created this romantic design covered in delicate ruffles; the florist embellished the crown topper and tiers with ethereal cream- and blue-colored blossoms to match the color scheme.

Wedding Cake with Gold Truffles: This ornate confection by Connie Cupcake is covered in gold truffles and edible crown molding made from sugar and shaped to form a crown.

Two-Tier Cake with Crown: Turn a simply frosted confection into a showstopper by adding a sculptural crown.

Croquembouche with a Crown: For something glamorous and unexpected, opt for a croquembouche tower (a traditional French wedding dessert made with cream puffs) topped with a sparkly crown.
