Candles aren't the only thing you can put on your cake.
You're going to want someone to take lots of pictures and shoot lots of video when you bring out your special cake because cake toppers magically bring your cakes to life with colorful and reusable pieces that will make your birthday child very happy.
Imagine bringing out your cake and having everyone wanting to get a closer look at the fun decorations.
Available for a variety of party themes from Curious George to Tinker Bell, cake toppers are a wonderful way to add that special 3D touch to your cake.
Many cake toppers have movable parts that animate your cake presentation. This makes for even more fun because your child can play with their toppers after the party, or use them as collectibles.
A must for theme birthday parties
If you're having a theme party, cake toppers add so much more because the theme of your party is right on top of your special cake.
For your train birthday cake you can find a topper that includes a wind-up train engine that runs on a small set of tracks right on top of your cake. For a Curious George birthday cake, George lays in a hammock that swings freely between two palm trees. And for a Bob the Builder birthday cake you can have Much the Dump Truck digging up frosting.
Decorating your cake with toppers is creative fun. For more information and a large selection, just follow the link at the bottom of this article. Here is just a very small example of cake toppers that are available.

It's easy with cake toppers
If you don't have time to bake a cake from scratch, just pick up a cake at your favorite bakery, then pick up a cake topper at an online party supply store and watch your cake come to life. And remember, toppers are reusable and can be used as toys, party favors or collectibles after your party is over.
Why give your birthday child a plain old round or square cake with nothing but candles on the top when you can easily bring your cake to life with a cake topper that matches your party theme and makes your cakes so much more fun.
So remember to get those cameras ready to capture the happy, surprised look on your child's face when they see their special cake for the first time, magically brought to life with colorful, fun cake toppers that can be used as toys or collectibles after your party.
