I whipped up this adorable cake topper this weekend. I should mention that I have no idea what made me think that I could just whip up a cake topper, let alone a cake. The cake was really touch and go. At one point I had to toss out one layer since it crumpled into pieces and I was one meltdown away from throwing the whole thing out! Alas, I was on the universe's good side and everything ended well. I mustered my inner Ina Garten and showed that icing who the real boss was!
-Plastic gold coins (I found mine at hobby lobby or you can find some similar HERE)
-Hot glue gun
1. Cut wire to your desired lengths. I decided to vary my lengths for some whimsy.
2. Hot glue your cut wire onto the coin and sandwich another coin on top.
3. Place in your cake and enjoy!
