How to put together a DIY printable cake topper

Dec 22, 2021

If you can’t decorate a cake to save your life and spending big bucks on a customised cake is a little out of reach, printable cake toppers are a quick and easy (and also affordable!) way to lift your birthday cake game.

What on earth is a printable cake topper, you ask?

It’s a cake topper that you print, cut out and assemble yourself at home. Don’t worry - it’s easier than you think!

When you purchase a printable cake topper from the Linen & Wove store you will be emailed a digital file (in PDF and JPG format) of your customised cake topper. Print out your cake topper at home or at a print and copy shop such as Officeworks or Staples. White card about 200gsm would be ideal so that it can support its own weight but is thin enough for you to cut out with scissors.


You’ll need scissors, tape and skewers or paper straws.  

Then you’ll need:

• Scissors
• Tape
• Skewers or paper straws

Cut along the thin dotted grey line around the artwork, then use the tape (or PVA glue if you have the time to wait for it to dry!) to stick your skewers or paper straws onto the back.

Insert onto the top of your cake and voila! You have a cake topper that took you less than 15 minutes to assemble!
