Dressing up a plain cake is a snap, with this fast and easy DIY that will work for almost any occasion. Using graphic wallpaper samples, which can be purchased online for a few dollars (or free of charge in some cases), you can create charming wallpaper cake toppers in a matter of minutes.
You will need: scissors, wallpaper samples (I used this one, designed by Emily Isabella), lollipop sticks, non-toxic craft glue, pen or pencil
Directions: Select a wallpaper sample that has a bold print that can be cut easily to make a graphic statement on your cake. Using a pen or pencil, trace the shapes you wish to cut out, or simply start cutting without tracing first (whichever works best for you). Cut out the most interesting shapes to use as cake toppers. Run a small bead of glue over the top one to two inches of your lollipop stick, depending on how large the cut out shape is that you’ll be attaching. Note: Stop the bead of glue about 1/4 inch from the bottom of where your wallpaper shape will attach, to insure that no glue comes in contact with the cake, even after the glue is dry. This only applies to shapes that will actually be touching the icing when you poke them in. Adhere each shape to a lollipop stick. Wait for the glue to completely dry. Poke each lollipop stick into the cake at varying levels to create a scene atop your cake and enjoy!
