Fun & Festive Dessert Decoration: Cake Bunting

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.

1 Kylie Cake Bunting from Kiki La Ru: The Etsy seller behind "the original cake bunting" is currently on maternity leave, but you can admire her impeccably-made designs on her blog and sign up for notification when her shop reopens.

2 Fiesta Banner from A Subtle Revelry: The link includes a tutorial for making this wee string of papel picado.

3 County Fair Cake from Cakewalk: This cake was the centerpiece of a county-fair-themed birthday party. Cute!

4 Free Printable Mini Cake Bunting from Tom Kat Studios: Print out and assemble your own message out of paper flags.

5 Customizable Cake Bunting from Modern Luxe Events: This Etsy seller will email a PDF of printable flags for $5, with customized letting available at no extra charge.
