While putting together a baby shower for my sister, we just couldn’t find the right cake topper. So we made one using my Cricut Maker! Here’s how to create your own DIY Baby Shower Cake Topper!

Step One – Cut
First things first, we fired up ye olde Cricut Design Space and put together a design. While we know she is having a girl, her name wasn’t public yet. So we kept it simple with “Baby Girl” – using the Babette font, included in Cricut Access.
Then, we sent it to the Cricut Maker and cut it out of Cricut Chipboard – below is a picture I took before another project (we were on a time crunch the day of).
The important things to remember here (besides the correct blade) are to move the star wheels all the way to the right and tape down the edges of the chipboard!
It took about an hour to cut… and then we lost power with only a few passes to go! Luckily, I was able to take a craft knife and cut through the last layer – whew!
Then, it was time to add color to this cake topper! I had a small can of Testors Craft Gloss in Coral – so I took it outside and gave it a quick spray coat right in the grass (not approved by the lawn care guy… sorry honey!).
After the paint dried, I glued a few food skewers to the back, let that dry – and stuck it in the cake!
Et voila – One Finished Baby Shower Cake Topper!
Super cute right?
Of course, the cake itself wasn’t quite what we’d ordered but even this cake “fail” was cute, so it all worked out. And it was delicious, so no complaints!
