Some early cake toppers were thrown away after the cake was cut and served. Some were saved with the top layer of the cake to be displayed and eaten on the first wedding anniversary. Others toppled over and were smashed in the process of being transported. Some disintegrated with time or when stored improperly. Some were deliberately destroyed as part of a “divorce therapy”.

 

This exhibit which was on display from 2012 - 2013 includes the “survivors” from the 1880s until the present. They reflect the romance, fashion and history of weddings.
