The real icing on a wedding cake is the topper. Standing upon what seems like a Mt.

With so many options, it can be daunting when a gay or lesbian couple has difficulty finding matching matrimonial miniatures of the same gender. The LGBT community is now in luck — many online accessory vendors offer same-sex couples cake toppers that boast an assortment as diverse as frosting flavors. One is sure to satisfy every kind of couple — from the chic to the tongue-and-cheek — giving the most traditional of wedding cakes a pinch of pure personality.
