I know, cake topper is a dirty word when it comes to your wedding cake.  Visions of a cheap plastic bride and groom with frozen smiles come to mind.  You might as well add pillars to the cake while you’re at it.  Well now you can throw those misconceptions out the window!

Artisans are reinventing the cake topper for 2013.  Think about a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge or watercolor butterflies as an alternative or in addition to sugar flowers or ribbons.

Mirror Mirror Designs has taken the cake topper to a new level with a line of keepsakes to add to your cake.
