Adorable Floral Cake Topper for Petaloo

I was asked to create a wedding themed something for Petaloo. You can now add cake topper to your DIY wedding list.

I've used pink burlap flowers and daisy layers to top this cake while imagining a sweet, simple backyard wedding. But if your 'I do's' are a little more fancy, you could absolutely consider Botanica blooms atop a prettily iced cake, or vintage velvet blossoms for a shabby chic wedding.

To create my topper I simply cut out thick decorative paper and affixed a mound of florists foam/oasis to the top. I added coordinating trim to hide the bottom edge, then simply applied the flowers to the foam. I printed the sentiment on thick card, applied a painted bamboo skewer and pushed into place. If you're worried about your topper moving, simply push toothpicks in the bottom to hold your piece in place.

  1. Beautiful work. Wow this is a big cake. Is it real?

    1. It is real! It was a spiced coffee bunt cake. My son (and husband) was thrilled that he was allowed to eat it afterwards.

  2. Oh my goodness! This coffee cake is looking very tempting in these images! I wish I could also make this kind of amazing cakes for my wedding anniversary. Actually my husband booked one of the most beautiful event locations for this special day and I really want to impress him with my homemade cake. Keep sharing some more cake recipes!
