Check out our fun craft ideas that will add a bit of interest to your cakes and baked goods, and are fun to do!
We’ve included cake toppers in four different designs and a blank template as well for your own designs; you could include prices or get children to design their own. The templates can be found further down this page.
What you will need:
Cocktail or Cake Pop sticks
Glue (we find a glue stick works best)
Cut out each shape, glue the back of the design and fold it in half around the stick. The shapes have a faint line in the design so that you can see where to fold them.
Hopefully the picture helps show you how!We've also created fully patterned sheets so that you can use a shaped paper punch to create your own topper shapes.
Cut out two shapes, put glue on one, the cocktail stick in the middle and then place the other cut out shape on the back.
Please click on your required design for a PDF showing the different shaped designs:
Stripes Cupcakes Dots Hearts
Blank templates - these can be used for your own designs or for including prices
Here's the finished result!
If you aren't particularly creative, why not ask a friend who is, and ask them to come up with some ideas to decorate cakes and to create an attractive display.
Create your own Bunting
Our free fundraising pack comes with bunting and balloons to give your event that H4H look. For a unique look you could also create your own look with our 'do it yourself' bunting.
You could ask each of your guests to design their own piece of bunting or turn it in to a competition at school or in the workplace to see who is the most creative.
As you can see we've also been getting carried away with ribbon! You can have lots of fun decorating your stall. We'd love to see your displays and decorations, so please send us images of what you've been creating.
You can put images on Twitter @bakeforheroes, Facebook or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We've created a Pinterest Bake for Heroes board with different ideas for creating perfect looking cakes, packaging and for displaying your baked goods.
