DIY Art Deco Wedding Cake Topper

Add a glamorous Art Deco touch to your wedding cake with today’s simple but stunning cake topper DIY.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Styrofoam ball, 3.5″
  • 4″ clear plastic prism picks (we found ours online at a restaurant supply store)
  • Metallic gold craft paint
  • Metallic gold spray paint
  • One wood kabob skewer (cut in half)

Step 1: Cut

Cut a styrofoam ball in half with a sharp knife to make sure you have a smooth, flat half dome.

 Step 2: Paint

Paint the styrofoam ball with gold metallic paint and let it dry for a few hours.

 Step 3: Spraypaint

Lay out about 100 plastic prism picks and spray paint evenly to make sure all edges are covered. Flip them over and spray any unfinished sides.

Step 4: Assemble

Stick the prism picks in the styrofoam in an organized pattern at first, and then fill in any gaps as you see fit.

Step 5: Top it Off

Stick the wooden skewer into the flat side of the dome. Then, place the cake topper on the top of your wedding cake (making sure the styrofoam is very slightly elevated from the top of your cake and not touching). Get ready for a dazzling finish!

A Wedding Cake Inspired by a Wedding Paper Divas Design

Today we are sharing a wedding cake that was inspired by our wedding invitation Graceful Ginkgo. The lovely cake designer at The Couture Cakery always asks her brides to bring in their inspiration for their wedding cakes and she wanted it to match her wedding invitations! Jasmine did such a beautiful job designing this cake that we had to share!

Eye Candy: Ornate Cake

The cake cutting is one of our favorite wedding traditions, and this jaw-dropping confection takes wedding cake to a new (deliciously lavish) level. Between the topper, the shaped tiers, the bright hues and ornate details… we don’t know where to start the praise—it’s stunning!

And, it just so happens to perfectly match our Shaded Symbol wedding invitation:

Eye Candy: Gold-Lined Cake

Gold is back (though we like to believe it never really went away) and if you’re implementing it into your big day, consider a cake like this tiered wonder. Pairing the glam metallic with a pretty pastel is a gorgeous way to add some opulence without overdoing it. Isn’t it gorgeous?
