Updated on April 2, 2011

It is a commonly practiced tradition to have an anniversary cake at an anniversary party. The final touch, of course is that of an anniversary cake topper.

Choosing An Anniversary Cake Topper

As with any other type of cake topper, anniversary cake toppers come in a wide array of colors, styles and themes. This can make choosing the right cake topper a bit tricky, but in all actuality, the fact that there are so many different toppers to choose from just means that you’ll be better able to customize your wedding anniversary cake to represent the love and style of the couple you are planning an event for. When choosing an anniversary cake topper, make sure to take into consideration the other decorations of the party. If you're not sure what the colors are going to be, choose a neutral cake topper such as a glass topper.
