If you've always wanted to go above and beyond for your kids' birthdays, a Rockford woman is giving you that chance starting with customized cake toppers!

When I was a kid, I always had themed birthday parties in my parents' backyard because I was the only summer baby in the family.  One year, my mom had a cake made with my face in the middle and Justin Bieber surrounding it.

It was a BIG HIT at the party haha.

To anybody who knows how to make decorations or accessories for cakes and cupcakes using just a Cricut, kudos to you for being so artistic!

A friend of mine, Megan, was looking for something to occupy her time after work and started creating personalized toppers for cakes and cupcakes.


Orders started rolling in and she's been really busy making custom toppers!

Sometimes, having a little extra pizazz at a party makes everything come together.  Megan can make your ideas come to life in time for that next birthday, anniversary, or family reunion you're having.

Cupcake toppers start at $1.50/each or $18/dozen, cake toppers are $30/each.


Megan's hobby has slowly turned into a fun, small business right out of her house; Pailynn Topper Co.  Not only can you order through Instagram, she has a full Etsy shop set up, too!

There's another woman in Illinois who has a bubble business where you can rent her 'bubble dome'.

Basically, instead of you bouncing around in a bouncy house, the bubbles dance for you!  Find out more about Bubble & Bounce Co here.

Just imagine, you rent the bubble dome and get custom cake toppers to match the theme of your next event.  Would be sooooo cute!
