Lil' Cake Toppers makes beautiful, custom wooden figurines for placing atop cakes, but they're so versatile that they'd work for any occasion or simply as decorations. Discounts are available for sets.
Every (wooden) person is different and unique. So before you get started, ask yourself: what makes this person SO them? Design is in the details and small things like hairline, ear shape and eye placement make a big difference in ensuring your cake toppers are two-of-a-kind. After all, wedding toppers donʼt have to be a gown and tux, thereʼs a whole world of outfits, accessories and expressions to choose from!
Creator Esther Mun, co-founder of a NYC design studio, describes her inspiration:
I’d had enough of gifting pots & pans or donating cash to friends through impersonal wedding registries. So, I started customizing wooden cake toppers I discovered at a designersʼ fair and gifting them instead. People loved them, and the more I made, the more I experimented with different topper designs, looks, accessories and occasions.
