Back in the day, cake toppers consisted of a bride and groom atop a cake, looking stagnant with she in her standard white gown, and he in the classic black suit. For a little while there, the decoration all but disappeared, but now this garnish has made a wonderfully artistic and delightful comeback.
Gone are the days are standard one-size-fits-all toppers, these additions to your cakes will add flare and panache to your confection. Quirky, unique, and often custom to you as a couple; Essence of Events absolutely as a few of our favorites. Take a peek at what we’re oodle-ing at today and see what inspires you and what could add to your already delectable cake!
