Cheap and Easy DIY Cake Toppers

There is a reason I am not a food blogger. Ha! I can bake a cake and cupcakes, but I simply don’t ENJOY it.

There seem to be a lot of celebrations coming up this summer, so I thought I’d come up with this round up. Here are cheap and easy DIY cake toppers I have done in the past.
