This listing is for one 7.5", 6", 5", 4" or 3" edible cake topper printed on a Frosted Icing Sheet (also known as frosting sheets) or Wafer Paper (also known as rice paper), using edible ink.
The cake topper is uncut and will require you to cut it out yourself using a pair of clean, dry scissors. Please see the “How To Apply The Cake Topper” section for more information.
You can also add cupcake toppers to your cake topper order, just select ‘add cupcakes’ above when ordering your design. You will receive 30 cupcake toppers which are 1.5” in size and advertised in the photos at the top of the product (usually the second or third image).
PLEASE make sure to check the cupcake topper design before adding them to your order as it may be different to the cake topper design. If you require more cupcake toppers or perhaps a different style/design, please search the cupcake toppers section of our shop.
Please be advised that we do NOT personalise cupcake toppers as they are too small. They will also be uncut and will require you to cut out each cupcake topper individually using a pair of clean, dry scissors. Please check the “How To Apply The Cake Topper” section for more information.
The order will be sent in a resealable plastic bag to help it remain fresh and within a cardboard backed envelope for protection. They will last for up to 12 months if stored in a cool, dry, flat location (somewhere like a cupboard or drawer works perfectly) and within the original packaging but we recommend using them within three months of purchase for best results.
HOW TO PERSONALISE YOUR CAKE TOPPER
We offer a personalised message on the cake topper for no additional charge, if you would like it personalised with a message please pick "With Message!" and write your required message in the Personalisation Box above.
If for any reason there is no option to add a message or if you simply forget please feel free to contact us directly with your message and we can add it onto your order for you.
If you have selected that you want a message on the cake topper but we do not receive one with your order, we will contact you via message and/or direct e-mail asking for your message. If we do not receive it within 24 hours we will send out a cake topper with no message on to comply with our postage and dispatch requirements.
As explained in the “Item Description” section, we cannot personalise the optional cupcake toppers with a message, sorry!
FROSTED ICING SHEET VS WAFER PAPER
For the best quality results, we will always advise and recommend you purchase a Frosted Icing Sheet cake topper.
Wafer Paper toppers are usually an acceptable substitute if you’re making a cheaper cake where quality is not the main focus, but please keep in mind that wafer paper is more transparent and the colours will not be as vibrant as shown on the pictures above so there will be a noticeable difference in quality.
For more information check out the image below for a visual comparison:
HOW TO APPLY THE CAKE TOPPER
To apply the cake topper, simply cut it out with a pair of clean, dry scissors. Once cut out apply the topper onto the cake using a VERY SMALL amount of water and gently press down with your clean, dry hands going from the middle outwards until the topper melds to the cake nicely.
If you have ordered a Frosted Icing Sheet, there will be a clear plastic backing that you will need to peel off before applying the topper to the cake. Wafer paper does not come on a backing and can be applied as soon as you have cut it out.
WARNING: If you’ve purchased a wafer paper cake topper be careful as the wafer paper will curl or dissolve if it gets too wet, so it’s best not to use it on wet or runny icing until it has set.
Be careful applying the cake toppers onto freshly creamed or buttercream cakes, as the fat in some types of cream will dissolve wafer paper and frosted icing sheets over time. If you’re not sure, then wait to apply the cake topper until the day of the event and use the cake as soon as possible to avoid the topper from getting ruined.
Once a cake topper has been applied to a cake do not put the cake in the fridge or any cold location, as the cold temperature will cause the cake topper to crack, ruining the image.
If you’re still not sure on how to apply the topper or would like a video guide to follow along with, the best thing to do is look online for videos on how to apply the topper and follow along.
