This summer, the Supreme Court ruled that gay marriage bans are unconstitutional and the cherry on top of all those sweet upcoming nuptials is a cake topper that celebrates #loveislove sitting pretty on the tiered confections.

An adorable, essential wedding detail that used to be exclusively for the Mr. and Mrs. is now open to couples of all genders. The classic bride and groom mini-statue that has sat on top of countless cakes has gotten a more inclusive makeover over the past few years — from a figurine of a pretty pair of brides to two dashing miniature grooms. Lesbian and gay couples have been getting creative with the old-school wedding tradition, choosing playful, modern, and romantic toppers for their wedding sweet treats that wholly represent them.

Even the prettiest wedding cake with all of its sugared flowers and fondant piping can feel a little incomplete without the topper tradition. Your guests will eat up the charming details of these same-sex cake toppers. Laser-cut tongue-in-cheek phrases or silhouettes add a dose of the fresh and contemporary to classic tiers, while personalized sculptured mini-me's put a new, romantic spin on the traditional. These totally customized — and not to mention, darn cute — toppers take the cake when it comes to celebrating equal love.

Whether they're humorous, whimsical, or tastefully elegant, the final touch to your wedding cake should reflect the to-be-wed couple's personal style — and same-sex nuptials are no exception. We've compiled a few of our fave inclusive topper styles. So click through to see some cake toppers that are just as sweet as legalized love!
