PS: Here’s the recipe to the triple lemon blueberry cake I made for these pictures for those of you who want to make it all
For those of you who’d rather make the cake topper themselves, here’s how!
What you need:
What you do:
1. Draw and cut out the front of your letter in the scrapbooking paper.
2. Place the shape on the paper, back to back so that you can mirror the shape. Trace and cut.
3. Repeat steps one and two for the other shapes you want to include on your topper (hearts, dots, etc).
4. Cut out a long string of baker’s twine (7-8 inches). It’s ok if your string is too long, you will cut it to the right size eventually.
5. Take the back of the monogram, place the middle of the string on top of it towards the top of the monogram, cover with glue and place top of the monogram on top of it.
6. Repeat step five for each of the other shapes, placing them on each side of the monogram.
7. Put glue on the first stick, about 1 inch from the top and twist the baker’s twine around it. Repeat for the second stick.
8. Cut the sides of the string to the appropriate length.
9. Et voila, you’re done
