D.I.Y. Wedding cake Toppers

Some weeks ago I discovered a super cool wedding, Greek, site.
Myrto Kazi, director of Yes I do, came up with the idea of a guest post.

I had so much fun planning and making this super cool, wedding cake tutorial!

To make the toppers you will need:
- A print of your favorite heroes + a banner with their names on it
- Gold hard paper
- Crafting glue
- Scissors
- Bamboo sticks

You'll need a cake and a frosting, too!
I used the classic marble cake, chocolate chips and vanilla frosting.

And now the fun part:

Step 1: Cut carefully the figures and the banner

Step 2: Spread some glue on the back side

And lean the sticks on the glue and let them to dry out

Step 3: Spread some more glue on the whole surface

Step 4: Put them on the back of the golden paper

Step 5: Cut them again, after the glue is completely stable.

Step 6: Cut 3-4cm. from the end of the figures, to make them a bit shorter than the banner

After baking and chilling the cake, cover it with frosting and drive in the toppers.

The cake is ready!

You can use you own photos, too!
Just get inspired and adjust it on your own tastes.

Have fun!-Yes, you do!
