DIY Toadstool Mushroom Cake Topper

When autumn comes, the cool weather mixed with rain cre­ates a damp environment—perfect for our mush­room pals to sprout like crazy in the forests and woods. I thought this toad­stool mush­room cake top­per would brighten up your rainy fall days—and they make a great addi­tion to a wood­land themed kid’s party.

Plunk them into cup­cakes, cakes, cook­ies, even a big old plate of fried mush­rooms. You can draw a lit­tle face on them or leave them as just pure unadul­ter­ated toadstools—it’s totally up to you!
