If you print the templates in 1:1 scale ('Actual size') the cake topper is going to be the same size as in the tutorial.

If you need a different size cake topper - simply print the templates smaller or larger:

  1. Open the file using Adobe Acrobat Reader. It's the most popular PDF reader. You can download it for free here. You'll also find it in the App Store or Google Play.
  2. Go to File --> Print --> Page Size & Handling --> Size --> Custom Scale: type the percentage you want to magnify or reduce the PDF --> click on the preview on the right to refresh it.
  3. Print the templates.
So for example:
  • If you want the cake topper to be slightly smaller type 90%. If the original size was 10 cm, the new size will be 9 cm.
  • If you want the cake topper to be slightly larger type 110%. If the original size was 10 cm, the new size will be 11 cm.

If you don't want to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can scan the printed templates (original size - scale 1:1) and shrink/enlarge them using a graphic software (f.ex. Photoshop). Just make sure that you shrink/enlarge all templates the same way (by the same %).
