Sorry, folks. I’m a little late on this DIY cake topper I promised 3 weeks ago in my cake post. Piling schoolwork on top of a full-time job doesn’t leave a lot of time to blog (or do much else). But as many have said, it’s important to keep hobbies so I’ll try to post as often as possible. I already have a bunch of DIY ideas that I’m eager to try. Plus I’ve started gathering materials for another catscraper!
But back to the cake topper… I’m generally not a fan of the plastic decorations available at supermarkets or craft/specialty stores. You’re also limited when it comes to personalized decorations. That’s why I love this DIY clay letter cake topper from Julep. It’s super easy to do and you can spell out virtually any message you want. Head on over to Julep for the full tutorial. If you have too many letters like I did, just place each word on its own skewer and secure using hot glue. For tricky letters like “Y” that won’t lay flat, glue the top/bottom of the letter to the preceding/following letter.
I’m kicking myself for not taking a decent picture of the whole decorated cake (the one I have looks horrendous under a dim porch light). Oh well, enjoy this one I took the morning after. They’re durable so reuse it for your next party or keep it in a vase with some billy buttons for year-round festive cheer!
