Another thing for my daughter’s Buzz Lightyear themed Grad Party.
Both my daughter and youngest son are allergic to artificial colors so birthday and other event cakes can be challenging…instead of just a white or chocolate frosting, I made this cake topper out of fun foam. And of course since now shes an Electrical Engineer, I had to make it light up.
I glued led strip around the smaller shaped foam back (double thick .2") glued it to the back of the topper and all done. Now Ive gotta figure out how to wrap and camouflage the cord. The topper will sit on parchment paper on the cake to keep it clean.
The most challenging was working with the .025" kerf the laser made since foam melts easily…as well as getting the right power and speed… Some of the 2mm sheets had to have two passes probably because they were from a few different batches bought months apart…varied consistancy I guess.
And here’s an acrylic sign that will also go on the cake.
