DIY Starburst Letters Cake Topper

Thank you to Diana from Paint Sew Glue Chew for her guest post today!  Starburst cake toppers are a brilliant idea and so easy to do!!  She also has another easy cake topper- an ombre one that you should check out!  Thanks again Diana!



Hi I'm Diana from Paint Sew Glue Chew, and I am so excited to be guest blogging for A Bubbly Life today so that Laurel can spend more precious time with her gorgeous new baby.  
I love Laurels blog.  A Bubbly Life has some amazing ideas that are creative but easy to reproduce. The perfect combination.   

This Celebration Cake Topper made from Starburst candies can be whipped out in a matter of minutes, is pretty, and requires virtually no baking or craft skill.  
Even better, it can lend itself to so many impromptu events.  Birthdays, christenings, a name, cheeky messages, or a simple monogram.


Roll the sweets out so they are about 5mm thick, and cut the letter shapes out.



You can adjust the shape if you are a perfectionist.  Clearly I am not.


Take a toothpick, and insert in the bottom of each letter, before placing on the cake.  
You could just place the letters directly on the cake, but somehow the toothpicks make it slightly fancier.


And there we go - Celebration cake ready to party.


For our party, I made a vanilla sponge, and covered with plain vanilla icing.  The white icing works well for these colours, though obviously any cake/frosting combo would do.  
My icing skills are not going to win any awards.  Luckily the cake topper and sprinkles detract from my handiwork.


This was such an easy way to jazz up a cake, and could be used to monogram cupcakes if you want smaller eats.


Many thanks to Laurel for allowing me to guest post today.
