5 do-it-yourself cake toppers

FARGO – A party isn’t complete without a pretty cake.

I perused blogs to find easy DIY cake and cupcake toppers that look modern and whimsical.

Move over, frosted lettering, there are new toppers in town.

Topped skewers

Skewers and toothpicks topped with pom poms, small pinwheels, washi tape or cut-out letters add height and interest to cakes or cupcakes.

Plastic figurines

Again, spray paint jazzes up a common item. Plastic figurines are modern with a coat of gold or silver paint.

Bold cutouts anchored by toothpicks are a throwback to old silhouette photographs.
