I wanted to have a monogram cake topper for our wedding cake. Instead of buying it, I made it! It was easy, cost very little, and is a pretty decoration I will continue to pull out on our anniversaries. The key to the high-impact glamour is the German glass glitter I used. Glass glitter creates and elegant, almost glowing, candlelight effect that cannot be matched by “regular” glitter. Here’s how to make a cake topper:
Print out your desired letter or shape on plain paper. I typed my letter in a script font in a word document and kept sizing up as large as it would allow me to print.
Cut out your letter; I used an Exacto knife for this part.
Trace your letter twice onto two pieces of thin cardboard and cut them out.
With a foam brush, apply a layer of Mod Podge on the outward facing side of your letter, then apply glitter until coated. Remember that you will be glittering one forward-facing letter, and one backward-facing letter.
Sandwich the two cardboard letters around two (or more) skewers which will be inserted into your cake. Hot glue the letters onto each other with the skewers between.
