Cakes have been with us for the longest time, and have been evolving ever since. Many decades ago, people used to bake cakes and use them as they were without using any toppers. Nowadays, each and every cake has a special topper placed on the cake, with most of them made of icing sugar to make the cake more appealing and beautiful. A cake topper is any covering or decoration placed in the cake to conceal the cake’s ingredients, as well as display the desired message for the cake.
With time, cake toppers have evolved as we will see in this article. There are many types and genres of cake coppers, but the most common ones are the traditional bell topper, wedding theme topper, fresh fruit topper, and photo cake topper.
The traditional bell and wedding theme toppers have long been in use since the ancient times, and their main ingredient is icing sugar. Although icing sugar is still in use today, people have advanced different ways of using the same. With these toppers, most people use these toppers to create sculptures of the themes where the cake will be used. This has been a great way of decorating the cakes until recently, when people discovered new ways of using the icing sugar.
Another great birthday topper than has been long used and still in use today is the fresh fruit topper. These cake toppers give the true version of nature, and the manufacturers and makers of the same. Some people have even gone as far as using real fruits in cake toppings to add in the flavor. When it comes to appearance and decoration, the fruity toppers take it all especially if designed by an experienced person.
The most recent and more beautiful cake toppings used nowadays is the photo cake topper. This topper is directly printed from a computer to a personalized printer used for that purpose. Unlike other wedding toppers, the photo cake topper uses a special sheet of paper, made of wheat and rice, and inks from certified food colorings. This tipper brings out the true picture in pixels and everything in the photo. This is the newest birthday topper in the market.
The crazy or good thing with this topper is that, it is used together with icing sugar. All one needs to do is select the theme in which he wants the cake to have, place icing sugar around the cake, then carefully place the already printed birhday topper on the icing sugar. The printed topper takes the cakes form, and integrates itself on the icing sugar to bring out the image perfectly.
These are the most commonly used toppers in the markets, and you can choose the right one you find amazing.
