Your little princess is having a birthday party, and you are making a cake. What do you top the cake with? There are a number of princess themed birthday cake toppers premade and available for purchase, but if you want to save money, or find something a little more creative, consider the following ideas.
Use their favorite Barbie or Princess plastic doll. If you have a Barbie sized doll, it will make a great cake topper. You can make the cake to be the shape of the doll’s skirt, and frost it to match the top that the princess toy is already wearing. You just have to wrap the toy’s legs in plastic wrap, and insert it into the cake. It will look awesome, like a toy, and be edible and fun for the kids. No princes party goer will be disappointed by a cake made to look like a real princess. And, the good news for you, it is simple to do, and does not cost you anything!
A crown or tiara. It is always fun to use something as a cake topper that can be used again, or in another way. One great example is to use a plastic crown or tiara. You can set it in the center of the cake, and use icing to make flowers, write the princess’s name, or say “happy birthday” all around it. Then, when you serve the cake, you can remove it, wash it up, and the birthday girl can wear it for the rest of the party, or while she opens gifts, etc.
One fun idea for birthday cake toppers is to simply use your party favors as the cake toppers. You can do individual cupcakes for each kid, and put a nice little mound of icing, and stick the bejeweled princess ring, or whatever the party favor you have for them into the center. It is a simple, fun, way to distribute the party favors and decorate the cake at the same time. The guests will be delighted to receive the little favors, and your cake will be topped with something fun and on theme.
If you go on Amazon, you will see a number of Princess and fairy cake toppers for purchase. There are princess that light up, there are characters from their favorite movies and more. You need to figure out what your little princess would like best, what your budget is, and go from there.
Birthday cake toppers are a fantastic way to make any birthday cake more fun to look at, and thus more fun to eat. Just remember, almost anything can be a birthday cake topper. Polly pockets, and the little Disney Princess dolls make great cake toppers because they are plastic and easy to wash. Candy can be a great cake topper. Favors work well. Find something fun and go with it.
