There is a reason I am not a food blogger. Ha! I can bake a cake and cupcakes, but I simply don’t ENJOY it. I would rather pay someone else to do it. I DO however, like to make cake toppers. I think personalizing them is more fun than baking the cake. There seem to be a lot of celebrations coming up this summer, so I thought I’d come up with this round up. Here are cheap and easy DIY cake toppers I have done in the past.
Pictured above are butterflies I quickly whipped up for some cupcakes made of some craft embellishments from the Michael’s dollar bins. These next three are great because they are personalized with photos, therefore they can be used for almost every special occasion; birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, retirement, you name it.
Here are two very simple first birthday ideas. Of course, you can use these same ideas for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
For us older folk, (haha) here is how you glitter numbers for special birthdays like 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, etc.
This one was a recent discovery. The best part was that it cost about $2.00.
These are more specific to certain themes or holidays. I made a circus theme cake topper and cupcake toppers that looked like a carousel. For Christmas, I made these little elf feet with boots to put on top of white cupcakes to make it look like elves fell in a snow bank.
