Village cake topper – Silhouette Inspiration
Hey there! Glad to see you popped by the blog today. Now, you're probably thinking, she's a bit late to the game....Christmas has been and gone. And yes that is true, but I wasn't able to share this at the time as I was making it for my family Christmas cake, so didn't want to give it away before the big day. Also I was away over Christmas, and have now only had a chance to write it up. So this is more of an inspiration post, to show you another possibility with your Silhouette Cameo. I had an idea of creating a winter village cake topper, and I was quite pleased with how it turned out!
I designed the houses myself using simple shapes in the studio and welding them together. But guess what, I have taken all that guess work out for you! So if you fancy making a 3D village cake topper, then head to the end of the post to download the free cut file*.

- Card stock of varying colours in you choosing
- Liquid adhesive
- Double sided tape
- Cocktail sticks
- Tonic Nuvo drops

Village Cake Topper details
To add variation I cut out houses of different sizes and colours. It wasn't until I came to place them on the cake, did it whittle it down to the final few - I had 5 originally. Once I had the walls cut out, I cut small squares of vellum and stuck these on the inside behind the windows. This was to achieve a more realistic look.
I adhered the window frames and doors down with liquid adhesive, at times place objects over the top whilst the dried to keep them in place. Once all the items had dried, I folded on the score lines, and adhered the tab to the end wall. After this, I attached the cocktail sticks inside attaching to the card with tape - I used two sticks per house. These sticks allow to stick the house into the cake for more stability.
The roofs at securely on top once all tabs were attached and I finished the houses off with a Tonic Nuvo drop door handle.
