Happy Birthday Grandpa!

My Father in Law works out of state, and isn’t home often. He came home just the other day and we had a birthday celebration for him this evening. My youngest, Audrey, decided that she wanted to make him a birthday cake! (She’s recently gotten into baking, and makes a killer banana bread!)


So, she made a devils food chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and mini reese’s on top.


To make it more fun, and not have to have a million candles on top, we went with a cake topper. One of the great things about my cricut explore, is that I can use any of my fonts that I have. And Photoshop makes the other two layers possible!


I used Black, Chocolate, and Autumn Terracotta (retired) cardstocks from Close to my Heart to make this fun topper! I cut two of the brown so that I could hide the toothpicks between the two layers to make the back look good too!


I glued the letters and layers together with Liquid Glass, and then used foam tape between the two brown layers.

The whole thing came together in about 10 minutes! It was nice and fast, and added just a little extra to the cake!

What do you think? What topper would you like to see?

Until tomorrow!
