Welcome Home Cake Topper DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

A few weeks ago my mom gave me a package of wooden letters. I put them away, not knowing exactly what to do with them. When my husband came home from a long trip, I knew it was time to break them out. This is the prettiest and easiest cake topper I’ve ever made. And, you can write any message under the sun with these letters, and use any color sugar you can find – there are so many pretty hues out there.
