Do Not Let Your Cake Topper's Topple

Maybe you characters were not intended for the top of the cake but for child's play. Have no fear. Your little figures can become sturdy cake figures that will not topple. Just grab some wax paper and place a spoonful of your favorite melt chocolate in the center. Plop you character into the center and wait for it to harden.

When hardened remove for the wax paper and place a dab of icing on your cake where you want to place your Joy, Anger or Disgust. Sit you chocolate character on top of the icing to attach to the cake.

Best part of the process is that when your finished the cake you child can have the figure in which to play.

DIY Cupcake Topper

Making a topper for any themed cupcake it pretty simple; the Inside Out theme in no exception. Before you begin you will need some prebake and decorated cupcakes. Choose colors reflective of the main cast of characters.

For the DIY Cupcake Topper you will need some card stock, stickers or a printed image, some tooth pics or candy sticks. A glue gun will also be needed to finish this task effectively.

First take your Inside Out sticker and place it on to cardboard. Cut out around the image but leave a little space to give the topper a nice boarder. Take your glue gun and dab some glue on the back of the cardstock and attach your stick.

Be careful not to place the stick to far into the cupcake that the topper and adhesive used to make the topper come in contact with the icing.

Easy Step for Beginners

If you want a more professional looking cake. All you need to do is build your basic iced cake or if you prefer pick one up at the local bakery. Print out an image you like on edible paper and apply it to the top of the cake. If you do not have access to an edible printer you can easily purchase a prepackaged edible sheet with a cute Inside Out cake design. Just peel back your the image of the paper and place it on the cake. It should dissolve seamlessly into the cake.
