Lately I’ve been looking for ideas for cake toppers. I think they are such an easy way to dress up an otherwise plain cake or cupcakes. I decided to make some using cookie cutters so I picked up a few jungle animal shapes and decided to paint them. It would have been a lot faster and easier to spray paint them, but I already had craft paint at home so I used a paintbrush for these. Once they were dry I used a hot glue gun to secure two wooden skewers to the bottoms. All that was left to do was to whip up a batch of cupcakes (just to be very thorough… and because they’re delicious). And voila! How cute are these?

If you put them in cupcakes, each person could bring home their cookie cutter as a party favour- because once you remove the skewers they would be great for kids to trace or to cut out play dough shapes. You could also bake a cake and use a few cookie cutters on top to finish it off.
