This adorable cake topper does double duty as a showstopper AND a sweet treat!
Two sweet treat posts in a row, I can only imagine the gym time we’re going to log this month. I’m still sort of obsessed with the super cute ruffle cake we made last week, and so when I was coming up with ideas to make a simple cake topper for a special baby girl’s birthday I figured a short stacked version would be the perfect way to show it off. I don’t know if this even counts as a tutorial because it was actually SO EASY, a two year old could do it (get it!?).
All you need for this (well, aside from a cake, obviously) is some melting chocolates, wax paper, a piping bag and a template.
If you’re doing a number just print it out the size you want, but you can do the same idea for a name (but likely a larger size would work better for that). Place the template under the wax paper and outline the number with your melted chocolate first. Then quickly fill the shape in. You have to work relatively fast so it doesn’t harden in pieces.
Once you have your shape, dump all your sprinkles on it. I recommend moving your shape onto a cookie tray if you haven’t already to spare you a sprinkle nightmare. Speed is sort of the name of the game here too because if the chocolate dries the sprinkles won’t have anything to adhere to.
Let your shape sit for a little bit, until the chocolate is solid again. The best part about this topper is that not only does it look so cute, it also is like a personalized chocolate bar for the special someone (or their guests!). You can even chop it up and sprinkle it onto of the cake pieces when serving so everybody gets a share.
Told you it was easy! But there are endless options to add a fun little twist, like doing a Christmas tree shape with Christmas themed sprinkles for the holidays, or using glitter sprinkles to create an eye-catching New Years topper!
