DIY and Handmade Cake Toppers For Baby’s First Birthday

It is my strongly held belief that cake toppers are the pièce de résistance of a well-thought out party. Cake toppers will make a cake look infinitely more impressive and will help tie together a party’s theme like no other, but they can be deceptively easy to make. Here are a few of my favorite DIY cake toppers – simple and lovely – with a few handmade options thrown in for those of you (and sometimes me) who aren’t quite as crafty!
