I find it just as fun to create cake decorations in other materials than fondant and gum paste. Sometimes it is also much easier to make a certain type of decoration with glue and paper than if you were making it with fondant. There are so many great crafty sites and here are some of the ones that I love most when it comes to making crafty cupcake toppers.
This is my top 5 list for cupcake toppers:
#1 Sweet paper cupcake toppers.
