Buying Wedding Cake Supplies

I am interested in finding a supplier for wedding cake topper plastic bases (the thing the bride and groom stand on) and background plastic hearts at a cheap price. Can anyone here recommend a site that I could visit for these items, or even a retail store close-by that carries them?

Any party supply place has them inexpensively and also Walmart has a section with all wedding items. Good luck!

Price is pretty subjective--what is cheap to one can be expensive to another. I used to do cakes, and often people were shocked at the extra "charge" for the toppers or specific material they wanted on their cakes. I let them price some items they wanted, and then they realized that I did not mark that stuff up. Things like fountains and bridges could be really expensive to buy and often came back broken, so I had them pay deposits and sign leases that if they broke them, there would be additional charges. I always bought my supplies from the Wilton Cake Company, since they had the best and most diversified items. Usually people who want a traditional cake topper, want to keep it and don't complain about the price too much.
