DIY Cake Toppers

Recommended Posts

Good Morning Ladies!

 

I want to DIy our cake topper. :o) I am thinking a script font wood letter with rhinestone... But I am wondering, what size height and width and dimensions should I order..?

 

Craftcuts.com seem to have aweseme deals.. I just need insight on the sizing while I try to chose what font looks best for an R.

 

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. :o)

I was deciding between those two fonts as well!..

 

Chopin is 5 x 6.2

Brock is 5 x 4.7

And now I'm even liking Monterey, it's 5 x 5.8

 

 

I didn't realize how much the fonts vary in size.. So I've been doodling out each one to it's approxiamte size to see which will look best. I also have an email in to the WC to see what size the top layer of our cake will be.. I'm assuming 6 inches though.

If you get your letters from CraftsCuts how will you support them so they stand in the cake?

 

Good call on on confirming cake size with your WC, I should probably do the same.  I've actaully been contemplating doing a 5" or 6" topper with 3" or 4" "J' and 'T' letters. But again, I should check the cake size first, but maybe I can put our initials on a lower cake tier.

I have something similar to this - originally it was going to be a cake topper. I just glued two wooden skewers onto them. The skewers are super cheap, for a bunch of them. Our letter is an "M", so I just glued them behind the straightest of the lines, so they don't peek out.

 

We're doing cupcakes, so instead of a cake topper, I'm going to put it on our card/mad lib basket.

I was thinking of securing the back side with scewers.. (not sure of spelling, but those things you put kaboobs on.) I plan to paint the letter and scewers with silver acrylic paint and rhinestone both sides.

 

I love the 3 letter monogram! :o) and just saw a pic with the first name initials on the lower tab and they were super cute!!  I too wanted the 3 letters but I don't like our monogram.. BRA.. lol.. or ARB isn't so bad, but I just don't care for the look of it.. lol... :-/

 Great idea Allie! :o) Great minds think alike.. hehe

 

Choco, you wont have a problem with your fonts since I've checked those out, but anyone else looking for other letters, make sure the left and right side are equal at touching the cake, otherwise you'll have a slanted letter or scewers sticking out from the cake at one end. I fell in love with one font and then realized we would have an awkward letter once placed onto the cake.

Sorry to blow up my own post... but just heard back from my WC and she said for me to go ahead and get whatever cake topper size I want and they will make the cake to fit my topper. :o)

If yall had the choice, which would you go with? 5"?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
