Today, we’re going to be looking at mini Adirondack chair cake toppers. What you put on top of your cake probably isn’t high on your list of priorities for things to sort out before the big day – but it does need to be sorted! If you’re looking for a beach chair cake topper for your wedding – the mini Adirondack chairs are perfect. But where to buy them? Can you make them yourself? You may not even know what an Adirondack chair is! Let’s take a look.
What Is An Adirondack Chair?
Typically, an Adirondack chair is an outdoor chair with wide armrests. You’ll often see them at the beach. The seat is usually higher at the back and slates downwards as you move further back. It takes it’s name from the Adirondack mountains.
Why Have A Cake Topper?
You absolutely do not need to have a cake topper at your wedding, but I think it’s a great idea. Whether you choose mini-figures of yourself, or a sign – it really adds personality to the cake. At my wedding, I had a “Happily Ever After” glitter sign at the top of my cake, and I loved it!
If you want to give your cake a personal touch, I would recommend a cake topper. It’s a great way to easily identify your cake and it’s usually something inedible – so you can keep it in your memory box long after the wedding day is over.

DIY Adirondack Chair Cake Toppers
If you’re creative and love to be crafty, why not try making your own? There’s a heap of tutorials online but my favorite is this one from A Bride on the Budget. The best thing about making your own is that you can tailor it to whichever size you’re looking for – and choose whichever color you want too! Something to bear in mind is that this may take a few hours – so you’ll need plenty of patience.
To make your own, you’ll need:
- Pattern from Kyle’s Woodworking (printed)
- Craft Sticks
- Wood Glue
- X-Acto Knife
- Paint of your Choice
- Paint Brush
It really is ready in just a few simple steps. But it is time consuming. This may be a fun activity to do with your partner. Especially if you each decorate your own chairs. Most of the items you’ll need, you likely already have at home so it won’t be very costly at all. And the end product will likely look just as good as one you can buy from the store!
Buying Mini Adirondack Chair Wedding Cake Toppers
If (like me), you have very little patience and getting creative with your hands isn’t something you’re great at – don’t worry! There are plenty of places you’re able to buy your own. The best places to find them are online stores such as eBay and Etsy, but you may be able to find something similar in your local arts and craft stores. It’s worth asking your cake maker if it’s something they can provide, especially as they will know the exact measurements of your cake.
Another place that may be worth looking at toy stores. This may seem an odd one but there are plenty of dollhouse chairs that would work perfectly on top of your cake. They may not be mini Adirondack chairs, but you never know what you may find when looking!
