Shaker Cake Topper Tutorial

Shaker cake toppers have become a popular new way to decorate the top of cakes in a personal way.

Today I will show you how simple it is to make these toppers – and with so many different unique touches or themes.


– Chipboard – Painter’s tape – Strong grip mat – Sequin confetti. I also love this one! – Glitter cardstock and/or Cricut party foil – Regular cardstock – Bamboo skewer – Paper straw – Acetate

Gather your materials and begin by cutting out the acetate circle. Next, cut your chipboard out on the strong grip mat. Be sure to use painter’s tape to secure the mat.

Cut out the remaining circle pieces in glitter cardstock or regular cardstock. I also tried using party foil, which was fun for some extra sparkle!

Once everything is cut out, mix your sequin confetti to your preference. To assemble, start with the chipboard frame and acetate circle.

Glue the acetate circle on top of the chipboard frame. Next, pour your confetti into the center of your base circle then glue the acetate and chipboard piece on top.
