DIY Rainbow Cake Topper


Hey y’all! It’s Grace from Grace Anne Studio.  In my family, we’re all about celebrations, and I look for any way to add a personalized touch. My daughter’s birthday is coming up, and it’s the perfect excuse to make a fun rainbow cake topper!

Step 1: Paint

First, you’ll paint the letter. The sequins will have tiny spaces left between them, so painting the background gives the cake topper a cleaner look. I painted the front and back white and the edges metallic gold; because who wouldn’t want a little extra shimmer?

Step 2: Measure

Next, you’ll divide your cake topper into even sections and make pencil marks accordingly. Make sure you mark one section for each color of sequins.

Step 3: Glue Sequins

Then, you’ll apply the MONO Aqua Liquid Glue to the cake topper and add the sequins. Starting at the bottom of the letter, I used the broad tip side of the glue and applied it to one color section at time. This kept the colors contained to their section, and produced a fun layering effect at the end of the project! Once you’ve glued all of the rainbow, adjust any sequins that may need to be re-positioned, and use the pen tip side of the glue fill in any bald spots. Then, let the cake topper dry, and repeat on the back.

 

 

Step 4: Glue Dowel Rods

Next, you’ll attach the dowel rods to the cake topper. After cutting them to the appropriate height, I used the pen side of the MONO Aqua Liquid Glue and placed the dowel rods on the bottom of the cake topper.  The glue will need a place to dry, undisturbed, to form a permanent bond. Because I tend to go overboard with making sure a project is sturdy, I let the glue dry for a few hours then used the pen tip side of the glue to add another layer around the topper/dowel rod connection. I then let the glue dry completely before handling it again. When I did, it was really solid!

Step 5: Add Cake

All that’s left is to add cake! We kept the rainbow theme and went with a pinata cake.
