What could make a birthday boy or girl feel more special than a personalized name cake topper?! After spotting these magnets at Target, I knew they could be used for more than just holding cute artwork to the fridge. Just be sure you get two packs if you need more than one “E” or “A,” etc!
Step 1: Choose your letters and lay them face down on the parchment paper.
Step 2: Apply a dollop of hot glue to the top of a paper straw and gently press it up against the bottom of the letter.
Step 3: Repeat with all letters and gently pry off the parchment paper once the glue is good and dry. Gently remove any strands of hot glue. Cut the straws shorter if you wish, depending on the size of your cake and/or cupcakes.
