Where Fondant Meets Fun!

Cakes And Kids is my original shop on Etsy. It all began when I found a love for cake decorating after having my first child. I played with fondant on birthday cakes and then took some classes from a professional cake artist to refine my skills.

I love creating edible art and enjoy playing a part in making each child's birthday unique. Many of my designs are born out of requests I get from customers which makes them all the more special!

My original "Cakes And Kids" store sells edible, fondant cake and cupcake toppers and can be found at (currently on hiatus).

My second store, "The Playful Plate", offers personalized plates, bowls, mugs, placemats and platters and can be found at (currently on hiatus).

My third store, "The Dreamy Daisy", offers personalized baby blankets, bedding sets, bath accessories, stationery, dinnerware, backpacks and more, and can be found at

I am forever grateful to my incredibly supportive family and am so thankful to do what I love every day!

Welcome and thanks for visiting my shop! The name of my shop says it all - I love cakes and my kids and not necessarily in that order :)

Here are some answers to commonly asked questions:

When should I place my order?
Ideally you should order 2-3 weeks before your event as I do book up very quickly. Once you submit your order and make payment, I will place you on my calendar and will ship to you about a week before your event.

How long are fondant toppers good for?
The nice thing about fondant is that it has a lengthy shelf life (up to a year as stated by the manufacturer). I use a pre-manufactured fondant to make all my toppers.

How should I store the toppers?
Your toppers should be kept in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Fondant should not be placed in the refrigerator or freezer as the condensation can make it sticky.

Are the toppers edible?
Yes, all my items are made from pre-manufactured fondant, mostly Satin Ice or Wilton, that has a pleasant vanilla flavor. I sometimes use chocolate fondant for chocolate brown toppers. However, the fondant has to dry harder on the outside before shipping and so many people choose to use the toppers simply for decorative purposes

Can you create characters like Mickey Mouse, Elmo or Hello Kitty?
Unfortunately, due to very strict copyright laws, I am unable to reproduce any recognizable characters. I can however create toppers that will coordinate with your character themed party.

Hope the above helps answer any questions you may have but please feel free to convo me for more information anytime!

Accepted payment methods


Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


I currently accept PayPal for payment. CA residents are charged state sales tax on non-edible items only.


I ship within the United States only via USPS Priority Mail (1-3 days shipping time depending on your location) and generally ship items 4-6 days before your event date.

During the hot summer months I do my best to get your toppers to you in perfect condition. I let everything dry thoroughly before shipping and use Priority Mail so that packages reach you quickly. I don't ship using ice packs because that may cause condensation which can make the toppers sticky. Please ensure someone is available to receive your package so that it doesn't sit on a hot porch or in your mailbox all afternoon. Fondant may soften in the heat but generally won't melt. Once you receive your toppers, place them in a cool, dark place until you're ready to use them. Do not place them in the refrigerator as they can become sticky due to condensation.

Additional policies and FAQs

ALLERGY ALERT: Some of the fondant I use contains chocolate and all my cake and cupcake toppers are made in a location that has contact with nuts, wheat, dairy products and chocolate. Please do not consume my products if you have allergies to any of the above products.
