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!
