Story time

Once upon a time, a baker’s daughter was getting married. The girl wanted her father to create a symbol of the unflinching love between her and the groom, for the world to see.
The father spent several days thinking of many ideas. He decided on a lovely wedding cake with two amazing figurines on top of it. The figurines to be carefully placed on top of the glorious cake were a reflection of his daughter and her groom-to-be. The baker had conceived the cake topper as the perfect symbol of their love and bonding.
The daughter was shocked by the sight of the cake made with love and affection by her father on her wedding day. She was indeed touched by the beautiful gift and the sentiments behind it and she thought it was the best gift, among the unique wedding favors, she could have received. The cake, hosting the figurines, was prominently placed at the venue of the wedding.

It was in the Roaring 20s that High Society in the U.S. adopted the custom of using figurines of the bride and groom atop the wedding cake.  The perfect symbol of love including the two figures was so unique that the elite had to have them.  With their growing popularity in time, wedding cake toppers started to be mass produced commercially in the U.S., Europe and Asia for all to have.
