A string of brightly-colored bunting makes any room more festive, so it's no surprise that miniature bunting does the same for cakes. These little lengths of paper or fabric flags are such a cute way to decorate birthday cakes or other celebratory desserts.
If you're the crafty type, cake bunting is not too difficult or time-consuming to make, but there are also plenty of ready-made options for sale on Etsy.
