In preparing for a wedding, there are many things that need to be considered. For others, top of the priority is the wedding ceremony itself. In a traditional wedding, there is always a reception that is very important. The reception is where the party is held after the completion of the marriage. The most popular and most awaited part during a reception party is when the meal is served. Generally, in this event most eyes are on the wedding cake - the bigger and the higher the cake, the better. Most ideal cakes have different accessories to accentuate its features. One of the most popular accessories in the wedding cake is the topper. As included in wedding accessories, toppers are functional, not just only for the cake alone, but rather as one of the decorative items that finishes the touch of the wedding reception decor as well.

As with the cake, this is not just a mere party food. This is part of the wedding tradition where the couple are the first to make a slice and offer a symbolical bite to each other. Therefore, it has to be very special that needs to have beautification. In most cases, deciding in advance for the perfect cake, from different sort of frosting as well as to the cake accessories are dramatically prepared.

In traditional weddings, the wedding cake topper is a little figure of the happily wedded couple which is frequently seen on top of the wedding cake, this represents also the togetherness of the couple. It usually portrays the couple in their formal wedding attire and often the only part of the cake which can be kept for a long time.
