Do you ever have an idea in your head that you’re just determined to make work? That was me with a “word” cake or cupcake topper. I’d seen a few out there on several amazing event blogs and floating around Pinterest and couldn’t get the idea out of my head – but alas, there weren’t any comprehensive tutorials (that I was able to find in my self imposed 20 minute search – cause if I don’t set a timer then it could go on for HOURS!) on how to cut the words so they’d be attached.
So here is how I finally figured out how to cut the “EEK” cupcake topper from our Witch’s Brew Party. The tutorial shows the original “Toil and Trouble” idea I had – but it overwhelmed the cupcakes so I made an adjustment and went with “EEK”. The process is the same, regardless of the word or font.
I cut two “eek”s out, painted a wood skewer black, and sandwiched the two sides with glue over the skewer. I’m envisioning these for all kinds of holidays and celebrations we have coming up!
