My family loves cake. I used to love to bake and decorate cakes, but those days are long behind me at this point. So when I’m responsible for the cake, that means I’m buying one. Sadly, storebought ones are kinda boring, especially when you get the generic ones from the deli case the hour before the party. LOL Sure, you can buy some decorations, but those are generic, too. But what DOES make any cake look magnificent is a CUSTOM CAKE TOPPER! So I am showing you how to make DIY cake toppers with custom names and phrases! 

Now you probably have everything you need already to make a cake topper — just a few sheets of cardstock, some bamboo skewers, and some glue. That’s it. So easy.

You’ll want a way to cut your cake topper — you can use scissors or a craft knife, but I’m using my Cricut cutting machine because it’s way faster and I love using technology to make my life easier.

I’ve even made some cake topper designs for you to use, along with a template so you can make a topper with whatever name or saying you want. 

In this tutorial, I will show you how to use my template to create a custom cake topper (or just use a design I already made for you!) and then how to assemble your DIY cake topper so it stays on your cake!
