Cake Toppers – History and Tradition
Delving into the history, tradition or origins of Cake Toppers is a little bit murky but there does seem to be one common opinion. While the exact origins are not recorded, one legend dates the tradition back at least 100 years whilst another dates the tradition of Cake Toppers as far back as the Roman Empire.
The one common story that can be unearthed is that of a baker, whose daughter was getting married around the year 1901. The bride to be wanted a symbol which would best describe what she believed her intended marriage represented - a token of the love she and her husband to be, felt for each other - a declaration of their love, for the entire world to see.
After due and considerable consideration, her father the baker, came up with an idea but would not reveal it to his daughter until the actual wedding day itself, a personal gift from father to daughter on her special day.
On the day, as she and her new husband entered the reception venue, on the main table was a beautiful white layered wedding cake and proudly sitting atop of the cake was a miniature, figurine, hand crafted model couple, dressed in wedding attire. The father explained that the model symbolised the couple, the love that they shared for each other and the sweetness that would always be their life.
Hence, or as the story goes, the wedding Cake Topper was born.
