Though cake toppers I can get behind are few and far between, I’m almost always in favor of the formation of a union between the humble cake topper and sweets. Particularly if said cake topper is made of chocolate, and especially if it’s made out of really, really nice chocolate.
For those same-sex couples thinking of marrying in or around Manhattan, Martine’s Chocolates, a popular New York City chocolatier, now offers three styles of same-sex matrimonial duos crafted from fine chocolate. The chocolate grooms come dressed in tuxedos and boutonnieres, while the brides come in two, ahem, flavors: romantic and contemporary. The romantic brides hold bouquets and wear billowing wedding gowns, while the contemporary brides toppers are clad in form fitting wedding dresses.
And here’s a fun aside. More people in the U.S. are playing for keeps when it comes to marriage, or at least stopping at just one. New Census data shows 76% of Americans who have ever been married have married just once, reflecting a choice to stay with their partner or to not remarry after divorce or the death of a spouse. Nearly 20% of Americans have married twice and only about 5% have married three or more times, according to USA Today.
