I am a firm believer that cake toppers are the best thing to happen to parties in a long, long time. Here’s a few reasons why.
Cake toppers are an easy way to support small business
I know I share a lot of amazon cake toppers, because they’re an easy win. Want to know an even easier win? Talking to your neighbors! You guys, so many people have a Cricut or Silhouette machine that would love to make you a cake topper. I’m looking mainly at the crafty parents that are hanging around when I say this- but lots of people even turn their Cricut or silhouette machine into a booming business.
Cake toppers make any cake custom!
I am a firm believer in shopping small, supporting artists, and befriending everyone in my local party industry that I can. I am also a bit last minute when it comes to a lot of my parties personally. Having an option to order a cake topper for next day delivery, or even pick one up in-store means that I can turn any old cake into a custom cake to celebrate the occasion!
This procrastinator mama that sometimes-forgets-our-dog’s-third-birthday-until-2-days-later really appreciates being able to order my custom cake topper to correct my grave error immediately. I can swing by the local bakery when all of my cake artist friends tell me they’re booked up, and still throw a soiree fitting for any spoiled pooch (or human) in a pinch using whatever’s available.
I feel like I can focus on the flavor
This is probably completely irrelevant. My mom worked as a cake decorator for years, and I’m certain that this is a personal flaw but I’m going to share it anyway. I don’t want to look at a wonky colored cake and then taste like… almond or apple. Purplish gray descendants characters aren’t almond flavored! I don’t know how I came to this conclusion. I promise most of my birthday cakes growing up were fun colors. Now, though, I really prefer white frosting with a cake topper that fits the party theme. From there the inside can be red velvet, dark chocolate, whatever fun color the person we’re celebrating wants… without it feeling conflicting!
If you’ve never cut into your child’s favorite character to find the requested moist red velvet cake in there, just trust me on this one, it feels wrong. A custom topper can help you avoid this. Buy a really ornate Elsa cake topper, bake or order a gorgeous simple cake, and trust this process. Cake toppers are the best.
