  • In my own opinion, I think using a calligraphy strong font is much better than the slender font. The design would be able to hold itself and not bend. I have made some slender fonts in the past and I always get frustrated when it would bend during the event. Thou there are times i use slender fonts for some designs as requested by my clients. 🙂 By the way, I like the infinity love and celebrate design.ReplyCancel

    Did you use the modge podge for the cardboard backing and the glitter cardstock? ReplyCancel

    • You can use it to adhere a cardboard backing to the glitter if you feel like the topper needs to be reinforced – I only used it to attach the cardstock to the skewers since it felt durable enough to me!ReplyCancel

    What size bamboo skewers do you use?ReplyCancel

    Thanks for the tutorial! Do those fonts come in the Cricut DesignSpace App? I’m looking to create a customized cake topper for a friend on the Cricut at my local library. How would I go about creating the actual worded design? Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Hi Sarah,

      I created all of the topper designs using InDesign! I would recommend using a design program of some kind to create your custom topper, then exporting it as a .png. Once you have your custom .png, you can follow the rest of the tutorial to upload to DesignSpace. I used a few custom designs that I created myself, and the November Starlight script for the lettered ones! I hope that helps!ReplyCancel
