Is providing a cake topper something you do for your clients (at a cost of course) or do you tell them to buy it themselves?
I make a lot of toppers out of fondant, gumpaste, that kind of thing. I don't have any metal toppers that I rent out, but I'm sure there are a few people here who do.
If it's from somewhere I normally order from, then I'll buy it and charge them. Otherwise I have them provide it for me.
If I make it they pay for it! Otherwise, they provide the toppers themselves, I don't order anything for people.
