Beautiful, but not sturdy
I would suggest this item simply as a gift, but DO NOT suggest actually using it as a cake topper. I purchased this for a bridal shower cake I made. I was very impressed when I received the item, it was very beautifully made and makes a lovely keepsake! However, there is no base to set the topper in, so when it came time to put it on the cake it kept wanting to fall over! I finally thought it was stationary, but 5min. later it fell completely off the cake and the shifting of weight caused the whole cake to shift and fall! I was very disappointed!
