I found this awesome gold 5 candle a few months back and knew I had to put in on my daughter’s cake. I’ll be honest the girl’s all shrieked in equal parts excitement and fear when the sparker was lit. My son however, thought it was amazing.
This was my quickest Happy Birthday Banner and it just might be my favorite one, too! Also, how fun with this same idea be for a cupcake topper.
What supplies do I need for a Pom Pom Birthday Cake Topper?
It’s almost silly to write a blog post about this Pom Pom cake topper since there really is only one step… except that it turned out so adorable and was so simple that I felt compelled to share it with you all, regardless.
HOW TO MAKE A POM POM CAKE TOPPER:
First, lay out all of your pom poms that you plan to use for your cake topper. I stuck with the party colors in pinks, yellows and oranges.
Next, based on the size of your cake, decide how many skewers you are going to use. I also recommend on varying the heights of the wooden skewers to add more interest.
After you have all your supplies laid out, you can glue the pom poms onto the tops and sides of the skewers.
You will end up with delightful wands of colorful pom poms!
Meri Meri sells some of my favorite party supply items and their Pastel Striped Candles were a perfect cake decoration. Plus, it was the perfect color scheme of the party. They came in a box with pink, white, yellow and oranges.
My advice to all us busy mom’s out there, stop baking cakes and spending forever decorating them. I have a few friends who have a true talent with baking and decorating cakes (that’s you Amanda + Michelle), but to the rest of us, make life easier on yourself and simply buy a store bought cake.
I bought two mini cakes from my local grocery store and they were delicious. They were easy. And they cost $6 a piece.
