It’s officially September, so that means it’s okay to start posting Halloween stuff, right? Right?? I hope so because I. Am. Ready. Ready for fall and the holidays and all that goodness! To get things started, I am really excited to share this fun little candy cake topper DIY! This is a simple little paper project that adds a lot of sweetness to your Halloween party.
This little design is also part of a larger project that I am really excited to share with you all! I’m happy to introduce Fresh Cut SVG Bundles, a special, limited-time monthly SVG bundle! Every month each of our ten talented designers will create a special cut file to fit that month’s theme. This month’s theme is Halloween, and I am so excited to share all of these awesome designs with you guys. UPDATE: The bundle has now ended, but you can still get my design HERE or check out our current bundle HERE.
My halloween design celebrates every kid and kid-at-heart’s favorite part of Halloween – Candy! There is something just kind of amazing about Trick or Treating on Halloween, right? Going door to door and getting free candy from all your neighbors – even from strangers?! It is seriously one of my very favorite nights of the year. You could use this design for so many things, but I imagined it would make a pretty awesome trick or treating tote bag:
Cute, right?! But this design really started in my head as a fun cake topper. I want to show you how I put this little DIY cake topper together in case you want to make your own.
DIY Halloween Cake Topper Supplies:
- Gimme Something Good to Eat SVG Cut File
- Colored Cardstock
- Silhouette Cameo or other cutting machine
- Adhesive Dots or other adhesive
- 3D Foam Squares
- Lollipop Sticks or Paper Straws
- Washi Tape or Hot Glue Gun
My SVG file comes with a few variations on the design. You will find a negative space option in a circle (like on the tote bag above), a version with the text separated from the candy pieces, and finally a few loose candy pieces to add in however you like. For the candy topper, I cut one of the original design from a lighter purple cardstock, then I used the offset feature in the Silhouette Studio software to create a darker purple background.
Finally, I cut some of the loose candy pieces from orange cardstock to layer over the top.
When all of the pieces were cut, I used small adhesive dots to attach the design to my darker background. Then I cut down 3D foam squares to small pieces and used these to attach the orange candy to the front. This gives the topper extra dimension and color. Finally, I attached my lollipop sticks to the back of the topper using washi tape (a hot glue gun would also work well for this.)
And that’s it! Stick it in your cake, and you are all ready to celebrate. I kept the rest of the cake decorations pretty simple, just a purple candy melt ganache dripped down the sides and lots of candy, of course.
Okay, that’s it for today! Happy September 1st and Happy Making! 🙂
