How To Make A Cake Plate & Easy Football Tailgate Party Cake Topper
Hi there! Kim Byers from The Celebration Shoppe here, with a super simple DIY cake plate. With only a few items you can have a beautiful stripe cake plate perfect for your upcoming tailgate party! And what’s better, with a few lollipop sticks and a sheet of cardstock, you can also have a fun football field goal cake topper!
Okay, let’s get crafty! You’ll need:
Super simple DIY:
Now let’s make this super simple field goal post cake topper! All you’ll need are lollipop sticks and hot glue. Yep. It’s that easy. And if you’d like to make them in cupcake size, you’ll just need a pair of scissors!
For the football, you can use Core’dinations brown cardstock and my Cricut Explore Design Space file. Or, if you don’t have a Cricut, cut an oval out by hand and use a white Elmer’s Painters Marker to draw on the laces.
One more cake topper idea for your tailgate party! Do you prefer something that screams your team colors? My youngest son, Cole, loves football and wanted a football birthday party. I whipped up these pennants for his cake topper. He loved them and we used them as fun photo props with his friends too. We personalize the files, you print, cut and hot glue to wooden dowels (found in the wood crafting section).
I can also teach you how to make the GAME ON popcorn bags using a few goodies I picked up at JOANN! Hop over and join me at The Celebration Shoppe today, search tailgating in the archives and I’ll teach you how!
