 Cake Toppers

Handy Tip!  Easiest Sylvanian cake toppers….
Ask at your local toy store for a Sylvanian Families catalogue. Cut out favourite figures or scenes, paste onto cardboard circles and place on toothpicks to stand upright, or can be placed flat on top of cupcakes for decoration.

If your little helper wants to add to the creativity and excitement of planning the party, print out smaller size Sylvanian figures to be coloured in by the party girl herself. Once they're colourful and arty, Mum can cut the figures out and tape onto toothpicks or skewers to be used for decorations.


Cake ideas

When you look up Sylvanian cake ideas on Pinterest, it can be a little daunting. There are so many creative ideas out there. But not all of us have the Cake decorating skills of Sylvania's Mrs Cakebread Poodle the Patissiere!
Here are some fantastic ideas for that easy-to-make Sylvanian cake! And it might give your inspiration for your own cake decorating idea, and if so, we hope you come back here and share it with us.


If you're struggling for time to make a Sylvanian themed birthday cupcake tower, this delightful creation is by Cass from  Sugar Coated Anarchy in Bondi, NSW, who will be only to happy to create this fun super yummy Sylvanian scene for you!

And from Fitzbirch Craft Facebook page this genius cake idea, using the Sylvanian Families Paddling Pool and Sandpit set, with it's well placed accessories as part of the cake décor!  Not only does the Paddling Pool work as an adorable and easy cake idea, but afterwards can be part of the "gifts" adding to the Birthday girl's collection.

How about this easy as can be Cake idea? It can double up as a Cake, as well as a surprise Sylvanian present for a birthday gift.



And we love this idea from Fiona in Tasmania! Did you know that the Sylvanian Ballerina's come on a plastic stand? This can be placed as a cake topper and keep your ballerina’s feet pristine. Simply clean down the stand afterwards.

The ballerina's foot stand keeps the figures clean while standing on the cake icing.


Table Decorations

A Sylvanian-loving friend from Holland recently held a Sylvanian Families themed birthday for her 5 year old. See her cute and easy table cut out décor ideas.

Easy to make Sylvanian Families cut out figures.
Find some high-resolution Sylvanian figure pictures (try the official Sylvanian website) and print them out on good quality paper.
Glue the picture to sturdy cardboard backing and when dry, cut out to the shape of the figure. So simple, and aren't they adorable! I suspect most party guests would want to take one home!


Paper Popcorn boxes from the $2 store taped to the back make a great stand for the figures. 

(Thanks to Bloem in Holland, for sharing her daughter's birthday party decoration ideas!)
