Things You’ll Need

Hole punch
Wooden skewers
Scissors or heavy duty sheers
Washi tape
Step 1: Print the Cake Topper Designs Onto Cardstock
Download and print the free Mother’s Day cake topper designs onto thick paper such as matte cardstock or photo paper. Print each of the designs out with scissors, and separate the large cake topper banners from the round mini cupcake toppers in two piles.

Step 2: Punch Holes Into the Large Cake Toppers
Punch two sets of holes on either end of the printed large cake toppers, one by one. Make sure to offset your holes by just a little bit. This will ensure a properly angled set up in Step 3, although your angles don’t need to be perfect.

Step 3: Slip Cut Skewer Sticks Through the Holes
Finish the large cake topper banners by cutting skewers (think: the kind you use for kabobs on the grill) in half using scissors or heavy-duty sheers. Then, slip the cut skewers through the punched holes. They should be angled slightly inward thanks to the offset holes you punched in Step 2. This angled silhouette will allow for easier cake-topping in the final step.

Step 4: Tape Toothpicks to the Mini Cupcake Toppers
Flip over the printed and cut out mini cupcake toppers so that they’re face down. Lay toothpicks towards the bottom middle of the toppers, and attach them to the printed paper using pretty coordinating washi tape. Press firmly with your fingers to set the tape.

Step 5: Stick the DIY Cake Toppers Into Place
Finish by gently pushing the skewered cake banners and cupcake toppers into the tops of sugary, sprinkle-topped pastries, and you’re done! We think your mom will love these cheeky sayings come Mother’s Day, so pair up with your siblings and make these toppers ahead of the celebration as a group in just 20 minutes!
