Want your cake to be the star attraction? This simple DIY cake topper can help! 

Nato Welton

Using a star stencil, trace an arc of connected starts on to gold glitter card, and, using a scalpel, cut it out. On a separate sheet, cut out a shooting-star shape with a message, gluing white paper to the back to help it stand out. Fix this to the arc using double-sided foam pads and then attach to two cake pop sticks.
