All products listed were in stock and priced as shown at the time this was written. Dulhan may be compensated for some of the following recommendations.
I might be in the minority here, but I love a good cake topper.
Not the horribly sexist version where the woman is dragging a man away by his collar. Or the weirdly sexual ones where the toppers are groping each other’s butts. (Yes, they exist. Yes, they’re gross).
I mean fun modern toppers, like the ones that are made to look exactly like your dog or cat.
Even though I love them now, buying a cake topper never crossed my mind when I was planning my wedding. It was 2 years later, in the early days of Dulhan, when I happened to stumble across them.
What I found was a far cry from the white, blonde-haired, blue-eyed, cake toppers plastered all over the Hollywood rom coms that I grew up with.
Instead, these cake toppers…looked like me. Well, not exactly like me. I mean representative of me—of *us.* Brown skin. Colorful lehngas. Sparkly tikkas. Representation, y’all! It’s powerful and important.
Anyways, before I get carried away on my soapbox, here’s a list together of all the custom South Asian cake toppers that I could find in case you’re eager to get one of your own. Enjoy!
