gold animal cake toppers - diy guilded cake toppers | via oneyounglove.comOne of my closest friends just had her first baby and a few weeks ago I had the privilege of helping with her shower. I wanted something very boy but also creative and cute for mama. These gold animal cake toppers were a hit and I had so much fun making them for Linds.

They ended up coming together pretty quickly and they had a huge impact on the table scape. The best part is, you can make them too! Here’s how:gold animal cake toppers - materials | via oneyounglove.com*You’ll want a drill bit that is the same diameter as your skewers1. gold animal cake toppers - plastic animals | via oneyounglove.comTake each plastic animal and drill a small hole on the bottom. Drilling the holes works best if you start slowly. I would also strongly recommend you use a vice rather than your hands to hold the animals.gold animal cake toppers - drill | via oneyounglove.com2. Place the skewers in each hole. If you chose the correct size drill bit you won’t need glue. If your holes ended up slightly larger than the skewers, you can add a dab before you set the skewer.

Make sure you get every angle including the skewer. If spray paint in your cake concerns you, leave about two inches of unpainted skewer at the bottom.gold animal cake toppers - a golden zoo | via oneyounglove.com4. Let them dry and have a party!

I love how these turned out. They are great for a birthday party or shower it doesn’t even need to be a party for kids, adults will love them too.gold animal cake toppers - cupcakes | via oneyounglove.comI think they are a fabulous mix of fun, whimsy and sophistication.
