The Cake Topper Makes The Cake}

Submitted by: Amanda J. Peters

There is little argument that the cake is the highlight of the wedding reception. It is so important in fact, that it ends up with a table all its own and it is placed in an area where everyone can see it easily. To make a wedding cake complete, you need just the right cake topper.

Now, you want to make sure that you are not dismissing the cake topper no matter how little it may appear to be when compared to the rest of the cake. In a lot of ways, the cake topper can make or break your cake and it will give a personal statement about your wedding. Think of it like the star on the top of the Christmas tree. It completes the whole thing.

Your Personal Choice

There are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of cake toppers that you will have to pick from. There is everything from the cheap plastic ones to over the top expensive crystal toppers. There are even animals, fictional characters and grotesque themed cake toppers. You name it – you can find it.

Now, how do you go about picking the right cake topper for your needs? The best thing to do is to look at the style of the cake, the theme of the wedding and consider your personal choice. You want to make sure that you love the cake topper, especially since it would make for a nice memento after the wedding.

There are usually three cake topper categories. There is the casual, the semi-formal and the elegant. The elegant cake toppers are usually the ones make from ceramics, crystals and porcelain. Think of the classic bride and groom pose and you pretty much got the idea of it.

The semi-formal cake toppers are usually made from hard plastic and there are some details such as bows, lace and ribbons. You will find that there are more casual or even funny poses than anything else.

Then there are the casual cake toppers for the couple that considers themselves casual. The materials used might be the same as what is used in the elegant cake toppers, but the poses and the figures themselves are much more casual in nature.

You will want to make sure that you are consulting a cake maker in order to make sure that you re getting the perfect cake topper for the cake you are going with. This way, your cake will look as though it is well put together instead of looking like a mess. Of course, you can always ask the cake maker to make you a custom made cake topper.

Some Purchase Tips

Of course, if the custom made cake topper is not up your alley, you will still find that you have many other choices to pick from. There are all kinds of bridal shops and bakeries that will have many designs for you to look over.

You will want to make sure that you are carrying with you a picture or a drawing of the design of your wedding cake. This way you will not have to guess about the size, shape and color of everything. You will also help make the job of the sales staff much easier when you ask them to suggest some cake toppers.

In the end, you want to make sure that you are paying attention to the small details of your wedding – right down to the cake topper. The detailed attention will pay off for the wedding ceremony and the reception as well. Just make sure that you aren’t sweating the small stuff to the point that you turn into the next bridezilla!
