I love to look for ways to make parties feel special. While I don’t use cake toppers for most parties, they are a fun way to make things feel extra celebratory. This easy homemade cake topper is a great way to do that. And it’s edible. So that’s even better!
Why This Works
Macaron cake toppers are the cutest! Macarons are so much more useful than some of those other basic cookies.
I mean, do other cookies look cute enough to top a cake with? I think not. And you certainly couldn’t write on most of them.
Edible ink turns these beautiful little cookies into the perfect personalized billboards for your cake messages.
This DIY cake topper is super easy and takes just minutes to put together. It also works for just about any event.
You can match the colors to your party theme and customize your message to be specific to the guest of honor.
Or you can make a balloon cake topper.
How to Make a Macron Cake Topper
Slide a lollipop stick into one side of the macaron. Stop the stick when you think the end is about in the middle of the cookie.
Do not push the stick all the way through.
Be gentle, macarons are delicate little things. If you aren’t careful your big old mitts will crush them.
Then all you need to do is use edible markers and find someone with way better writing than you.
You can write any message you want. These can be for any kind of celebration. Like, “Happy Wednesday!” or “Sorry you got fired!”
And the best part? You can totally eat the entire thing (minus the stick, don’t be dumb). You can’t do that with other cake toppers!
Macarons come in so many amazing colors that you can match virtually any cake or party decor. And your cake can be super simple and plain so these really stand out.
This make your own cake topper is a quick and easy idea that all your guests will love.
And if you have never had the chance to do a macaron tasting, grab some friends, buy a dozen and check them out.
They usually come in flavors like passion fruit, violet and earl grey and are crazy delicious. I was also blown away by the coffee one. So tasty!
You can match the flavors to your cake flavor or you can just go by color.
