Christmas Cake Topper

Überraschung auf der Weihnachtstorte!

Do you have the honour of contributing something to the festive family meal at Christmas? The countdown to Christmas has begun! And we find ourselves in more of a decorating and baking fever than usual. Moni and Sara from Feines Handwerk show you how you can really show off at a Christmas afternoon coffee gathering. This time, it involves a Christmas cake topper with deer and a moss arch on your Christmas cake with fondant.

Step-by-step instruction

Instructions from Moni und Sara from Feines Handwerk

atom/icons/craft Easy
atom/icons/time 35 min.

You need that

  • KAPA® board, 1 cm thick (or take two 0.5 cm boards like me)
  • Circle cutter
  • Temporary Glue
  • Ribbon, 1 cm wide
  • Wire semicircle (I used a lantern hanger)
  • Decorative Moss
  • Sewing thread (in copper here)
  • Paper doilies with a lace look
  • Paper for banner
  • Decorative Fir Trees
  • Mini figures ("Deer")

01
1. Craft a plateau for the cake topper

For the plateau, cut one (1 cm thick) or two (0.5 cm) circles out of the KAPA® board. Glue the two 0.5 cm circles together. Then coat all around the plateau with glue and stick the ribbon on it.

02
2. Decorate and affix arch

Next, wrap the arch with moss and yarn however you like. You can decorate the whole arch or just half of it. Now glue the lace doily to the topper and drill the wire arch through the KAPA board so that both wires come through at the bottom. Let them sit a little longer and the wires can disappear into the cake later, then the topper will hold its position without slipping.

03
3. Finally, decorate everything

Now all that’s left is the decoration. For this, cut a banner out of paper and write on it. Then affix it to the moss with glue – the glue really adheres to all materials and disappears without a trace. The great work of art is done.

04
4. Marbled icing for the festive cake

You now need white and black fondant. First, make grey fondant out of a lot of white and some black fondant. Mix the 3 different colours together and roll out the fondant. You can now decorate your festive cake with marbled icing.

Your crafted results

Now Christmas can come, and you can impress everyone with your cake on Christmas Eve. If you fancy doing even more great DIY projects and reading some creative blogs, you’re welcome to visit our blog,

We wish you a lovely Advent,
