3 Fun + Awesome DIY Cake Toppers

Hands down one of my favorite ways to deck out a party is with a fabulous cake topper. Want to know a little secret? If I’m pressed for time (or I’m just feeling lazy) I have no problem hitting up the local bakery for a cake. I’ll pick up a cake that’s simply frosted in white buttercream and then top it in some awesome fashion. These fun cake toppers are inexpensive and quick to make, making them perfect for a party cake on the fly. Whether it be for a birthday party or brunch with the girls, withthese beauties in your crafting arsenal, you can’t go wrong.
