The focal point of every wedding reception is the cake. Brides and grooms sometimes spend months trying to pick
out exactly the right cake. Everything from the flavor of this culinary masterpiece, to the color of the icing and
the wedding cake topper are all important details. The topper in particular can be a
fun way to express how the couple feels about their special day.
