Buntings are such a festive way to personalize and dress up just about any dessert - and they are super easy and quick to make. For my daughter's birthday, I cut out flags from some of her favorite fabrics to make her cake bunting. She always asks for a Baskin Robbins' ice cream cake with cotton candy ice cream.
To celebrate our wedding anniversary, I baked my husband's favorite dessert and decorated it with a cake bunting too. We traveled to Europe on our honeymoon and Paris was one of our favorite destinations. So for this bunting, I stamped "je t'aime" on linen flags.
Each flag is attached with a simple basting stitch and tied onto a dowel. I purchase full length dowels and use a pair of my garden shears to cut it to the desired length. If you wish, additional embellishments can be hot glued to the dowels. I added a vintage rhinestone to this one.
