Birthday Cake Topper in Acrylic

This is my first acrylic cut so I was a bit nervous after reading about melting and fires and things… but it was fine! I cut it in neon pink Trotec 1/8" acrylic. I made the drawing in Procreate and I haven’t been able to get “text to path” figured out in Inkscape so I just placed each letter individually. I took awhile but I think the end result is pretty.

That is a great topper for a cake. Once the birthday party is over, take a bit of time to work on the text to path in Inkscape. It isn’t that hard and it will sure save you some time on the next project.

Nice work! CUte design!

That looks great!

I followed a youtube tutorial but it ended up in a weird place and I couldnt figure out how to get it where I want. I think there will be a lot of Inkscape tutorials in my future :slight_smile:
