Everyone knows how fun and enjoyable cupcakes can be. But with an added touch of cupcake toppers, you can turn any set of cupcakes into a themed set for a birthday party or other specialized event. Cupcake toppers come in many different themes, such as superheroes or cartoon characters. Whatever the event, you or your children are sure to love the addition of cupcake toppers to their favorite flavored cupcakes.
Cupcake Topper Themes
Depending on the event, different types of toppers may be relevant. If you’re having a birthday for a child, you may want to consider using something like his or her favorite Disney character or movie as the general theme for the cupcake set. If it’s an adult birthday, you can get cupcake toppers of the age they’re turning or jokes to make light of the occasion.

One of the cutest cupcake toppers we found which can also double as a cake topper is this particular “Promise” cake topper. It’s definitely great for any sort of romantic get together that you’re having with your significant other or at a wedding to top off the cake. It comes in a very simple design, which is what makes it so fantastic. Unlike other toppers that try to go overboard with designs, this particular cupcake topper is perfect for almost any romantic occasion. You can also get some colored food pens to add different writing to the cupcakes to make the ornament unique every time you use it.
