I love to create my own custom party decor! Birthdays are a time to celebrate each individual, so why not make the party as special as the birthday child? I have been having loads of fun crafting party animals to decorate cakes and cupcakes with (find them in my Etsy shop) and now I can FINALLY make my own cake toppers to go with them!

I made a fun, short video with all the details for this project. Check it out:

Some things to keep in mind when working with resin:

  • Wear gloves and work in a well ventilated area
  • Protect your work surface and use disposable cups and sticks
  • Never pour left over resin in your sink! Let the resin dry in the container and then throw the dried stuff away.
  • Always measure carefully to ensure you have equal parts from both bottles, otherwise it won’t set correctly.
  • Mix the resin slowly to minimize air bubbles.

I just love how cute and colorful these resin cake toppers are! The coaster silicone mold is perfect for creating a base, and the letters are just the right size for crafting  custom message on the cake.
