Who knew a little paint and a dollar store nicknack could make such a killer cake topping?
Love how this turned out!
Here's how you do it..
First, pick up a nicknack, plastic toy animal, or other statue and some paint ( I used acrylic paint for the doggie and spray paint for the rhino below). Make sure you get the right kind of paint for your cake topper. If you have a plastic animal, get plastic spray paint (you can find this at any home improvement store). Paint or spray a thin layer of paint on your nicknack and let dry. Repeat, repeat, repeat until your nicknack is the perfect shade.
If using on top of a cake, place a piece of cardboard cut to size under the puppy so you don't get paint on your yummy frosting : )
Oh, and for a video on how to make the ruffled frosting check out this:
It is way easier then it looks!

I can't wait!
Watch out dollar store, I'm head your way for more.
Hope you Enjoy!Loves,
