give your cake some love

Why not give your cake creations something extra with an interesting topper. They certainly aren't just for wedding cakes anymore! I decided to make a carrot cake for my husband's birthday last month. Two tiers sounded like a modest idea so I went with three instead and created a monster. If you fancy giving it a whirl then it's one of Lorraine Pascale's delicious recipe. Any cake that requires 9 eggs is going to be decadent!

I decided to ditch candles and finish it off with my very own birthday cake topper for a bit of fun. If you fancy jazzing up your next birthday cake download the free printable version here. Just print onto card or paper, cut-out and sandwich two wooden skewers or knitting needles between the  two sides when sticking it together. C'est voila! Bye bye candles and glace cherries!

Here are my top 6 cake toppers for a bit of inspiration, all of which could be easily made.
