Cake plaques are the newest type of cake decoration. Similar to our cake toppers, they are made with acrylic or wood and are used to decorate cakes.
The difference between a cake topper and a cake plaque is the design and placement. Cake toppers are designed with a stick that is used to place the cake topper on top of the cake. Cake plaques do not have a stick and are often attached with icing to the side of a cake.
We get this question ALL the time. If you are having your cake made by a bakery, have them attach the cake plaque for you. If you are DIY-ing it, there are a few options.
Below are some of our favorite ways to use cake plaques! Many of them are customers who have purchased our cake decorations. Visit the Simple & Sentimental website to see our entire cake plaque collection.
