How to Turn Your Wedding Cake Into an Ornament

Whoever thought of turning your wedding cake into a Christmas ornament is probably a genius. As a matter of fact…wouldn’t it be awesome to get a tiny replica of your entire wedding?! Lol. Imagine tiny ceremony chairs and wedding arches and tiny plates and flowers for your wedding tables. Now I kind of want to make a wedding diorama!

While I’m (kind of) kidding, I would be seriously excited to get a wedding cake ornament. They range in price (you can expect to pay anywhere from $80-$200+ depending on the complexity of your cake design), but it’s something I could easily see becoming an heirloom.

  • I got married 8/4/18 I have a few nice pics of my cake and would like it make into an ornament.

  • Prices? Process? Timelines? Not looking to spend a fortune, as there are several couples in my life for whom this will make a wonderful gift.

  • I would love to get a quote as well…I imagine you will need a picture at some point?

  • I would love to get some info on this for my cake and for my aunt’s wedding coming up..great idea i love it and can u personalize it or would i have to have it done elsewhere.

  • Wow,I own a catering company. And my Mother and sister are wedding planners. This is awesome and the price is great.I would like more info Mabe some cards brochures. Great work brides will love this!!!!!

  • For the work that goes into these they are worth the price. When I get married I will come to get one made. They look gorgeous.

  • I would like my cake priced. It had 60 cupcakes and an 8 inch small cake. If you could get back to me asap that would be great. Thank you

  • While some may think these are pricey please take into consideration the time it takes to re-create these cakes with such detail into an ornament….while the cost is prohibative for myself being retired on a fixed income…I am an artist and I am going to attempt to make one to replicate my son’s wedding cake into an ornament….I make them an ornament every year and this would be so perfect for them next Christmas 🙂

  • Reign, I’m going to have to agree with you. Everyone is struggling everyone is trying to make your business or make it by. These towns and people that can replica your wedding cake on an ornament for you to hang year after year after year personally I think it’s priceless

  • Those of you who think these are over-priced apparently think this can be manufactured in some sweat shop in China, rather than hand-crafted by an artisan who painstakingly reproduces your cake into an ornament. As an art studio owner, I think the price is right on point and will gladly pay the price she asks for a replica of my wedding cake. I guess all of you only make $5/hr. at your job, so you think that is all that skilled artists deserve too. Get a grip! You get what you pay for. If you want a $15 ornament, go to Target or Walmart and see if they have your wedding cake there. Good Luck!

  • I think it’s a neat idea! There are always those who want the stars and moon and don’t want to pay anything. I may buy some for couples who referred me to other couples 🙂

  • I personally don’t thinkable price is that bad for what your getting ! Your wedding cake was bought for eating then it’s gone. The ornaments are custom made to look like the cake you chose for your Union w your forever spouse ! The ornament is somethings you can have on your tree and share in the memories of it w your children and grandchildren and pass it down generation after generation ! I think it’s an awesome idea but I am very sentimental! I will definitely be getting one ! And might try finding pics of my parents and grandparents’ wedding cakes to do as well. And gift these to my children when/if they marry 🙂 !
    Wonderful family keepsakes !

  • All of you complaining about the cost probably paid more for your cake, and if you didn’t then who cares. Stop crapping on other people’s ideas because it doesn’t fit your budget. There’s more than another option now

  • As fun of an idea as it is these prices are ridiculous . I will stick to my memory .. Or take a pic of your wedding cake , laminate it and put a hook on it to hang up. .
