Cake toppers can be anything from modeled gum pastes or marzipan, to figurines and cut-outs, that are used to design the surface of cakes. If you're planning on designing your own cake, here are some tips on where to find cake toppers.
- Bakeries. A bakery is a shop that makes and/or sells breads, cakes, pastries, and other baked products. It is also known as a baker's shop or a bakehouse. Most bakeries today also serve as cafes selling coffee, tea, or other drinks to people who buy and eat the baked products on the bakery itself. Some bakeries sell cake toppers aside from their cakes.
- Baking Supply Stores. A baking supply store is an establishment that sells different kinds of products for baking. It sells baking supplies like baking mats and parchments, baking cups, pastry brushes, blenders, and scrapers, rolling pins, flour sifters, torte and pastry rings, and cookie presses. It also sells bake wares like bread and loaf pans, tube pans, different shapes of cake pans, cookie sheets and jellyroll pans, cooling and roasting racks, muffin, popover, scone, donuts, and corn stick pans, pie pans, roasting, lasagna, and broiler pans, spring form and cheesecake pans, different kinds of molds, and tart and quiche pans.
