Tips for a Successful DIY Barbie Cake Topper
Choose high-quality paper for printing. Use a sharp pair of scissors or a craft knife for cutting. Securely attach the cake topper to the cake using toothpicks or adhesive.
Choose high-quality paper for printing
For the best results when printing your DIY Barbie cake topper, it’s important to choose high-quality paper. Opting for a sturdy and thick paper will ensure that your design looks vibrant and doesn’t easily tear or wrinkle.
Look for cardstock or photo paper specifically designed for use with inkjet printers.
Using a higher GSM (grams per square meter) paper will also give your cake topper a professional finish. This thicker paper holds up better against moisture from frosting and won’t droop or become flimsy on your cake.
It’s worth investing in good quality paper to make sure that all the effort you put into creating the perfect Barbie cake is showcased beautifully.
Use a sharp pair of scissors or a craft knife for cutting
To ensure precise and clean cuts, it’s important to use a sharp pair of scissors or a craft knife when cutting out your DIY Barbie cake topper. Dull scissors may result in jagged edges or tearing, which can affect the overall appearance of your cake decoration.
By using a sharp tool, you’ll be able to cut along the lines more easily and achieve a professional-looking finish. Remember to take your time and work slowly, especially if there are intricate details in the design.
With careful cutting, you’ll have a beautifully crafted cake topper that will impress everyone at your next birthday party.
Securely attach the cake topper to the cake using toothpicks or adhesive
To ensure your DIY Barbie cake topper stays in place, securely attach it to the cake using bamboo food grade skewers and adhesive. Gently insert toothpicks into the bottom of the printed design, making sure they are evenly distributed for stability.
Then, carefully press the food grade skewer sharp pointy ends into the top of your cake, arranging them strategically so that they remain hidden beneath the cake topper.
Apply a small amount of adhesive to the backside of your cut-out design and gently press it onto the top of your cake. This will help keep your beautiful Barbie-inspired creation intact throughout the party festivities without any worries!
