I wish I had the knack for cake-making. My “caking” skills are limited to making a plain ‘ole chocolate cake – anything more elaborate than that almost always ends in tears.
Then I discovered edible cake toppers – they’re like cake-magic. And they make people think you’ve got Martha Stewart skills.
Anyway, if you’re looking for the Octonauts cake toppers, here are some that you can buy and decorate your cake with.
Pre-Made Octonauts Cake Toppers
There are a few shops selling Octonauts toppers online. You can buy them off Ebay or Amazon. The ones below are from Amazon and look pretty good to me. Click the image for more details.

Make Your Own Octonaut Cake Topper
If you don’t want to buy an edible one online, you can make your own “unedible one” using an a4 paper. This is what one mother did anyway and it seemed to work just as well.
All you need to do is print out an Octonauts picture from the net. Make it a little bit smaller than the cake you have. Simply put the picture on top of the cake, leaving a little bit of space around it. Decorate around the picture with icing. You can also add some sea figures or Octonauts figures online. Obviously, you have to take the paper out when slicing the cake, because you know, it’s paper.
THIS JUST IN!!!: I was just about to publish this post when I started searching for edible paper. And did you know that there are such things as edible paper? and EDIBLE INK? Aren’t I the most clueless person in the world?

Decorate your cake with the sea theme. For info on how to make a sea theme cake, check out these sites which I featured on the Octonauts birthday theme party page

Then to give it an Octonauts twist, buy the Octonauts figures for sale online and use them as cake toppers. However, if money is really tight, you can also print out all the faces of the Octonauts, glue them on to a hard cardboard paper, cut them out and then glue them on to barbecue sticks. Stick these Octonauts-face-on-a-stick to the cake – voila! You’ve got your very own Octonauts cake. Easy as pie.
