(Pokemon Cake Topper) Level of Difficulty:
Today we’re making the highly requested Pokemon inspired cake topper using Cricut. I originally designed this cake topper for my son, Jack’s 7th birthday. When I first started the party planning process for Jack’s birthday, I planned on serving cake but since we ended up having the party at the park, cupcakes seemed like the best dessert choice. At this point I has already created the cake topper and since I didn’t want it to go to waste, I repurposed it as a centerpiece decoration and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
To create the centerpiece, I just added a small piece of styrofoam to the bottom of a mini bucket, stuck the Pokemon cake topper and a mini mylar balloon (found at the grocery store) into the styrofoam and finished it off with a few pieces of tissue.
Below you will find the supplies need, where and how to download the free Pokemon font and a video showing how to create your design in Cricut Design Space and how to assemble your own cake topper or centerpiece.

The font used to create our Pokemon cake topper is none other than the Pokemon font found on Dafont.com. This is a free font that’s available in two different styles, Hollow and Solid. The Solid is what is what we will be using to create our cake topper.
DESIGN AND ASSEMBLY
The cake topper design was created in Cricut Design Space using the Pokemon font, offset and shapes tool. In the video below, you will find a step by step guide to create your very own.
