It snowed in Utah today. Snow. Apparently Spring decided to stay on vacation this year, because she doesn’t seem to be showing up anytime soon. So, until warmer weather decides to come my way, I’ll just have to force a little bit of ambiance inside. This adorable printable cactus cake topper has me dreaming of warmer Arizona days. I was there last month for Spring Training with a friend, and we went on a cactus quest. My love for cacti runs deep and Arizona doesn’t disappoint in the cactus department.
I might have even been known to take a trip to the local grocery store to buy myself my very own cake. For no reason. This may have happened on multiple occasions too. (No, I don’t eat the whole cake. And come on, no judgement).
Another one of my favorite things is giving a normally boring store bought cake a pretty little makeover.
We’re now combining cake and a makeover. What is better than that?!
If you need to make a cake for a party, birthday, or get together, I am all for a homemade cake, but sometimes it’s easier and such a time saver to order from your local bakery or grocery store instead. Plus, you have some insurance for if those cake skills of yours end up lacking on the day of the party. 😉
And did you know that you can order a plain white cake (or any color) from the bakery? You don’t have to order one from those party books!
You can dress up a plain cake with a fun topper (like this one I shared here), but it’s just as easy to create a really memorable and gorgeous topper with fresh flowers, like the pros!
Today, I’m going to show you how to create a DIY fresh floral cake topper using only $10 worth of pretty blooms!
Remember one post back, when I mentioned topping this cake with a fun cake topper?
Did you really think I’d leave you guys hanging without a cake topper project…? Absolutely not. Duh.
I’m sure most of you happen to have a polaroid camera hanging around. They were all the rage a few years back and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon! (Have you seen the new wide camera?! Love!)
I’ve seen SO many awesome ways to incorporate polaroid pictures into everyday life and I’ve been kind of obsessed with celebrating the infamous polaroid in my own way…which would have to tie into a party, of course.
So I combined one of my favorite things (dessert) with polaroids…and this baby was born…a DIY polaroid cake topper!
You only need a few things to pull this baby off and most of the items you probably already have on hand. Plus, lucky for you guys, Peter Loves Jane created a gorgeous free printable to download!
