The scent of BBQ lingers in the air this time of year. The time has come to fire up your grill and drink a nice glass of ice tea on a patio somewhere. Time to celebrate Dads, America, sunshine, root beer, ice tea and ice cream too (of course) .
I wanted to make something sweet since the hot weather rolled in, and I thought a naked cake would be perfect. I love the idea of naked cakes and piling them with a bunch of fruit. Strawberries and blueberries are an amazing way to compliment the season. Put them on kabobs and mix them with marshmallows. Make a refreshing fruit salad festive in patriotic colors. In this case, I just threw them on top of my cake! (Adding fruit make it healthy, right?)
I recently had an order where I made some toppers being used as place cards. The toppers turned out so cute and I thought about how I haven’t made a cupcake tutorial yet! I love how these adhesive dots can create this 3D edge to crafts, really gives it that sleek and professional look. 🙂 If you like this design and want to order something similar, you can send me a message here.
So, as you know me, I couldn’t get my mind off of cupcake toppers. I started messing around with the dots and toothpicks, and the next thing you know I made this fantastic cake topper for my naked cake. Who would have thought.
