First, take the plain cake…

DIY Cake Decorating

Grab some frosting and some oreos, crush up the oreos and mix up the frosting…or buy premade frosting but you still have to crush the cookies!!!

Cake Toppings

Take the frosting and add a layer to the top of the cake, this will create a base for the “dirt” (crushed oreos).

Time to print and cut the printables.  I Prefer using matte photo paper. To make the cake toppers you will need just a few things:

FREE Printables

Wood dowels or skewers

Tissue Fringe (optional)

Glue Gun
