28th May 2012 - People have always derived immeasurable pleasure from the act of baking. Be it three-tier cakes replete with flowers made of and sugared plums, or simple home-made cakes freshly taken out of the oven. It is an act that abounds in culinary as well as gustatory delight. The soft and spongy bread, not only smells absolutely wonderful, but is also an enticing sight to behold. They are symbolic of that popular saying- “sugar and spice and all things nice”. Indeed, a cake well baked can be one the few absolute sources of joy, especially on those days when you are bogged down by the unshakable blues and the weather is downcast as well. Now, you can add extra zing to your confectionary with the range of cake toppers that also come as part of Wedding Collectibles
There are many occasions that merit the baking of a cake. It just does not need to be a birthday, or a wedding. It can be a christening or an anniversary. It might even be a personal party organised to celebrate a promotion or some other milestone in the person’s life. Social events also arrange for cakes these days.
These toppers can be edible or inedible. The edible kinds are usually popular in children’s birthday parties as kids usually love to eat figurines on the cakes, opting to eat the candy flowers and other decorations. These are usually made of sugar or fondant (a special substance used to make icing).
The inedible cake toppers are mostly made of polymer clay, keeping in mind that it does not infect the rest of the cake with anything toxic and is safe. There are plastic toppers denoting numbers which are put on birthday cakes, the more expensive ones made out of silver and sometimes even studded with synthetic stones.
Cake toppers are also considerably popular as wedding collectibles. These are mostly non-edible and are saved up as wedding memorabilia. These little figurines and food decorations are designed to indulge our aesthetic sensibilities and they always succeed in doing so.
