There is a story that tells us cake toppers originated from a bride asking her father, a baker, to make her a symbol of love which would be visible to all her guests at the wedding celebration. According to the legend, the father responded by creating two figures and placing them on top of a magnificent cake that was then positioned as the centerpiece of the wedding.

Whatever their origin, cake toppers became increasingly popular in Western culture around the 1890s when they were used mainly in the most elaborate of weddings. The toppers really became a common element of weddings several years later in the 1920s and in 1927, the Sears & Roebuck company started offering wedding cake figurines in their department store mail order catalogs.

Traditional cake figures in those days were often very generic and expressionless little statuettes of a bride and groom. Now however, cake toppers have really come in their own and come in many unique styles to fit any bride's dream wedding.

Cake toppers reflecting the bride and groom's vibrant personalities, unique tastes, and even their favorite hobbies have changed the way they are viewed, from just something to put atop the cake into a cherished and memorable part of the celebration.

Some of these new twists on cake toppers featuring the bride and groom golfing, fishing, chatting on their phones, or in various other humorous positions are available. This is perfect for the bride who does not necessarily want to go the traditional route but prefers something whimsical to reflect on her and her groom's vibrant personalities.

Many brides have also chosen to glean inspiration from their favorite films, books, and gaming franchises for a unique topper showcasing the couple's common interests. A much loved fairytale can inspire the choice of cake topper as well as everyday things like the bride or groom's professions and occupations.

The bride that prefers a more elegant and contemporary look to her wedding also has more than just the traditional to choose from. A beautiful pair of love birds might be just the right touch to her cake. Stylized hearts, stately castles or even more abstract, stylized forms of an embracing couple are elegant cake topper options.

For a truly personalized and symbolic cake topper idea try a monogram or initial. This can display either the monogram of the bride and groom's newly combined family or some couples simply choose to show the first letter of their last name. The letters come in several fonts, from serious serif and san-serif, to delicate cursive types. They are also available in different materials with embellishments such as rhinestones, Swarvoski crystals, wire, gold, and silver.

If you prefer to stick to a traditional choice of couple atop the cake even that comes with choices. Nowadays you may find customizable figures to more accurately match the bride and groom's physical appearance and culture. The pose options are varied as well from the stiff stance of olden days with cake toppers showing couples dancing, leaning in for a kiss, proposing, or embracing.

Alternate ideas to traditional cake toppers may be to simply top the wedding cake with a bloom of beautiful flowers. The simplicity of flowers scattered around and on the cake could be just the look you were looking for at your reception. Delicate silk butterflies would also be a wonderful touch around the cake.

Along with choosing styles, the materials that toppers are made from has also expanded. A bride may now choose to decorate her cake with porcelain, sterling silver, gold, glass, crystal, wood, or acrylic options and that is just to start! Not to mention some toppers made of various combined materials and there are even customized, handmade cake toppers available to you.

Furthermore, besides being the crowning glory of your wedding cake's design, cake toppers also provide you a beautiful keepsake of your wedding day and is in essence one of your first gifts as a new couple. The cake topper is a reflection of you and your personality as well as that of the groom's, so while you are looking through the various options find one that best fits both your wedding's style and you as a couple. With all the options out there you are sure to find the perfect one to treasure for years to come!
