How Do I Make a Layered Cake Topper With My Silhouette Cameo?

Making a layered cake topper with your Silhouette Cameo can be an easy and fun way to create a unique and personalized cake for a special occasion. Whether you are making a cake for a birthday, wedding, or just for fun, creating your own topper is an easy way to add that extra special touch.

The first step in making your layered cake topper is to design the shape you want. You can use any type of file including SVG, JPG, PNG, etc.

Once you have chosen your shape, you will need to size it correctly for the size of the cake. This can be done by adjusting the measurements of the design in Silhouette Studio.

Once you have sized the design correctly, it’s time to set up the cutting mat and load your machine with cardstock or other materials that are suitable for cutting with your Silhouette Cameo. To avoid any warping of the cardstock while it is being cut, it is important that you use an appropriate adhesive mat or spray adhesive on the back of your cardstock before putting it into your machine.

Now that everything is set up and ready to go, all that’s left is to send your design over to be cut on your Silhouette Cameo! Depending on the complexity of your design and type of material used, this process may take anywhere from several minutes to several hours so be sure to plan accordingly!

Once all pieces have been cut out and weeded away from excess material, it’s time for assembly! All that’s left now is putting together each layer and adding any additional decorations such as rhinestones or glitter if desired. With some patience and creativity you should now have a unique layered cake topper perfect for any occasion!
