It’s never been easier to customize a message just as unique as the person you’re celebrating! Whether it’s a wedding cake for your funniest friend or a dozen cupcakes for your favorite coworker, you can easily make their day more memorable with a custom inside joke or catchphrase.
Add them to a floral arrangement or layer up over a simple naked cake—either way your friends are going to know they’re pretty special.
–oven bake clay
-alphabet and number cookie cutters—I found these at a big box craft store, but you can also find them here.
-acrylic paint and paintbrush
-hot glue or super glue (not shown)
Turn your oven on and set it according to your oven bake clay manufacturer’s instructions. Then roll out your clay between two sheets of parchment paper until it’s about 1/4″ thick or more. The trick to the best looking letters is an even clay surface.
Punch out your letters and numbers and place them on a piece of parchment paper. Put that on top of a cookie rack before placing them in the oven according to manufacturer’s instructions.
Once they’re ready, remove from oven and let cool. Paint with your favorite colors and then glue the bamboo skewers to the back.
I love the idea of layering words in a phrase from highest to lowest. No matter what you spell out with these, add it to your list of must-make decor the next time it’s your turn to host a party. –Rachel

Clay is so great for so many things!
So darn darling! This would be a great project for those tiny Japanese cookie cutters I’ve been using for my daughters cheese slices..
For some reason it never occurred to me to stick anything on a cake other than candles 😛 -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
You guys have so many cute clay ideas! Love this one.
Aahh yes! I was to make so many silly and swear word cake toppers now!
Those toppers are so cute! I’ll definitely be making these!
Love this….so cute!
Cute idea. With the low temp that Sculpey is baked at, do you think if you soaked the skewers you could insert them into the letters before baking? Hmmm…may have to try it.
Thank you! This post was like a birthday present to me because I just turned 23 on Sunday.
So cute! You could do this for pretty much every occassion.I already have a few ideas in my head!
So cute!! Love this idea and can’t wait for the next party to use it for!
These are super cute (and I’m 23 – yay!)

Just remember once you use something with clay… it should not be used with food in the future. Example: rolling pin, cookie cutters, even the bakeware unless you put foil down first. Just something I’ve always heard about oven bake clay

To be honest, these clay toppers look deceptively edible. Definitely a cute idea. :]
