Editor's Notes

April 15, 2020:

Whether you’re cooking cupcakes in an oven with baking molds or you’re the sort of connoisseur who has a dedicated cupcake maker, please be sure to follow any and all guidelines and/or instructions that come with your cupcake toppers. Similarly, when it comes to carrying or displaying your cupcakes consider how much overhead clearance they’ll need to sit in place with their topper.

Decorative approaches can get very niche very fast. Just so, most of the options here are more universal in terms of appealing to more people and having more versatility where occasion is concerned. Designs inspired by video game and movie franchises have been omitted in addition to those intended for very specific occasions that don’t show much wiggle room like those which celebrate a particular event.

Options like the ValeForToy Mini Dinosaurs and Prextex Lollipops are obviously not specifically marketed as cupcake toppers, but research led to their inclusion since people very often use them as such. Moving on, when it comes to edible selections like the Wilton Edible Gold Stars, Georld Flowers, and Georld Mixed Butterflies, be sure to confirm that ingredients match up with your dietary preferences, and don’t hesitate to reach out to retailers for answers.
