Hello and welcome back friends!
Last week I shared with you all a card I made for one of my best friends who recently turned 40. Well today I want to share not only the cake I made for her but I also want to give you the file for the cake topper I created in her honour... for FREE of course!
With limited time, I thought making a naked cake for her celebration would be the quickest and easiest... well I was kind of right. It was way quicker than making a fondant covered cake but not the easiest, as I had never done this before. I am truly and happy with the results and love the look of the fresh flowers, which was a first for me too!
The cake itself was half vanilla and half chocolate.
Bottom layers chocolate, top vanilla.
I used 10 inch pans for bottom tier and 6 inch for the top tier.
The entire cake was covered with vanilla buttercream icing and finished it with a caramel syrup.
Doesn't it look Yummy!? 😋
As for the cake topper...
I designed the topper using the Silhouette Studio Software.
I cut out 3 layers of heavy 110 lbs white cardstock.
Glued them back to back with a spray adhesive.
Cut out my glitter layer and adhered that one to the top.
(I didn't have any gold glitter paper left, so I improvised and used a piece of Cricut Glitter Vinyl in gand adhered it to a piece of 60 lb cardstock and then cut it out... worked like a charm!)
I then used hot glue to secure a very thin wooden dowel to the back of the topper,
and that's it... fancy DIY topper all done!
