How to make the Summer Sun Cake Topper
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Bowl (or another circle-shaped thing to trace)
Ruler or straight edge
Paint brush or foam brush
Acrylic craft paint in the party palette
About 13 4″ treat sticks
Glue gun and glue sticks
Roll out a piece of Model Magic to about 1/4″ thick. Pop a bowl (or plate or any other circle-shaped thing) on top and trace it with a craft knife.
Use a ruler or straight edge to cut a half circle. Let the Model Magic dry for 12-24 hours so it’s hard enough to stand up.
Paint the sun with bright yellow acrylic paint.
Either roll, dip or paint the treat sticks in a variety of colors: some solid, some half-and-half.
Use hot glue to attached the treat sticks to the outer edge of the sun. To get them evenly spaced, you can either pre-mark the spots or start by putting sticks in the top center and outside edges, then spacing out sticks between them.
Glue two unpainted treat sticks straight edge to poke into the cake.
Add the cake topper to your homemade or store-bought cake.
