Looking for wedding cake ideas? No matter what style you choose, one easy way to personalize your cake is with our Mr and Mrs wedding cake topper. Featuring a geometric design, a gorgeous script font, and delicate olive branches, this papercut cake topper is very easy to make with your cutting machine. The burgundy color also perfectly complements our floral wedding chair decorations we just shared.
If your cake is more on the simple side, you can add some pretty papercut leaf decor and a ribbon around the base of your cake to dress it up a bit.
Loving you is a piece of cake
Our graphic designer Lindsay created this Mr and Mrs wedding cake topper for another team member who chose burgundy as one of her main wedding colors. However, you can craft this cake topper in any color you want! We just recommend using cardstock paper so it’s sturdier.
For the olive branches, you’ll want to use text weight paper so you can curl it around your cake. Another idea is to cut out some paper olive branches to use as table decor. You can also craft some paper flowers for your table.
When you are ready to make your Mr and Mrs wedding cake topper and olive branch decor, just download our patterns below. We recommend using a cutting machine since the details are so intricate. But you could cut these by hand using our PDF templates.

- To make the cake topper, cut the design of your choice (Mr & Mrs, Mr & Mr, or Mrs & Mrs) on cardstock. Glue a toothpick to the backside to insert into your cake.
- To make the leaf decor, simply cut from your color choice of text weight paper. Gently curl the edges; then place around the base of the cake. You can use a dab of glue or glue dots to connect ends to each other and secure in place on the cake.
