We just revealed that we are having a sweet baby girl to you earlier this week…did you notice our cake? It was one of my favorite cakes ever! I love the simplicity of the cakes style paired with the fun of the bunting banner. Do you love this style too? If so, you will love this easy tutorial on how to make a cake bunting topper that is perfect for any cake and any occasion.



Jute twine or bakers twine
Scrapbook paper
Wooden dowel
Clothes pins
Hot glue gun & glue sticks {totally forgot to put them in the picture below}



Step 1:

I found a wooden dowel from the craft store for about $.59 and just cut it done into two dowels in the desired size for my cake topper





Step 2:

Take your jute or bakers twine and cut a strand that you will attach to each wooden dowel. Determine how far apart you want your dowels and whether you want your banner to “dip” a bit or if you want it to sit straight across. I prefer to have a little dip in my banner, so I left a little slack to create this effect.





Step 3:

You should have cut your scrapbook paper into your desired shape. You can do traingles, “flags” or anything you love.


Step 4:

Using your hot glue gun, begin attaching each of your shapes to the twine. You can either leave a bit of space between each piece, overlap them a bit, or have them side by side…you can choose the look you love best.




Step 5:

Repeat this same process with a second strand but this time cut your twine a bit shorter and determine where it will sit on your dowels in comparison to your first strand.


Step 6:

You can take a couple mini clothes pins and attach them to the dowels to make it look like they are holding up your banner. I chose to tie my jute twine onto the dowels to make sure it stayed securely in place, but you could easily just attached your twine to the dowels using the clothes pins.




These mini banners are perfect for any style of party and are inexpensive and easy to make. They add just the perfect amount of fun to your cake without overpowering it. I love that the banner took our simple white butter cream frosting cake and dressed it up a bit.


p.s. sorry for the bad lighting in the above pic, I did not have time to take pictures of the cake in natural light before we went to dinner. Sometimes, you only have time to take pictures in the moment….in “real” time, and that is perfectly ok with me. Do you agree?


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment below or email me at blissfullyeverafter3{at}gmail{dot}com.

    I love this cake…so cute! The banner looks easy to make and really that type of rosette icing is super simple to do even if you have no cake skills. I have a cake decorating business so I’m baking all the time and I love when people go with the simple look versus the overdone stuff!
