We all know how important the cake is…but what about the cake topper? Is that important or just a finishing touch; a flurry if you will?
Brought to popularity in the mid 1950s in America, a cake topper was traditionally a representation of togetherness as a couple. Often made of porcelain, they would feature a Bride in a long white wedding gown and a groom in morning suit and would be a keepsake.
Nowadays they’re more of a representation of the couple, with a lot of brides dragging their grooms along, same sex couples and even families. Bunting and sparklers are quite popular too! Made from porcelain, putty, icing, wood or metal – anything goes!
What would yours look like? Did you go traditional or venture a little further ‘out there’? Mine was a bottle of wine and some cheese – all made of cake!
