I absolutely adore this idea! Make your own Personalized Wedding Cake Plate to use when you cut the cake at your reception! Then each year on your anniversary, pull out the plate and share a piece of cake! Embellish your plate with our free SVG file that reads, “romance is the frosting, but love is the cake”… a quote from the lovely Julia Child – or create your own. To make this plate food safe we’re placing the vinyl decal on the underside of a clear plate to show through. Using the Cricut Explore Air for this project truly means the sky is the limit when it comes to creativity!

SUPPLIES:

  • Cricut Explore Air
  • Premium Vinyl (in your choice of color, I used Teal and Silver)
  • Transfer Tape
  • 7.5″ Clear Salad Plate
  • Our free SVG file below!

Import Into Design Space

Download our free SVG file at the end of the post and upload it into Cricut Design Space. Then drag the file to fit the size of the item that you’re going to place the design on.

You need to mirror the design for cutting, because we are placing the decal on the UNDERSIDE of the plate!

Cut The Design

Using a regular mat with your Cricut dial set to “vinyl”, press GO and watch the magic!

Weed The Design

Using the weeding tool, carefully remove all the non-design areas from the vinyl. Most vinyl is the same color on the front and the back – which is exactly what we need for this project!

Apply Transfer Tape

Carefully apply the transfer tape on top of the design and burnish. Then remove the transfer tape backing, leaving the decal perfectly stuck to the front clear plastic.

Apply To Your Item

Hover the decal over the backside of your plate and once happy with the arrangement, burnish onto the surface. Gently remove the clear transfer tape and you’re done!

By placing the vinyl on the underside of the plate, it’s 100% FOOD SAFE. You can also wash it by hand, just be careful.
