What is the quickest way to take a simple cake from zero to wow almost immediately? Add a cake banner! Cake banners are so cute and whimsical and can be customized to fit any theme you may have in mind. A basic cake banner is really simple to make and consists of colored paper (card stock), string and lollipop sticks. You can stick with the standard triangle that makes it look like bunting or you can get creative and use letters, flags, mini tassels, circles, hearts...whatever comes to mind and works for you! Once you decide what style you want all you need to do is cut, hot glue your creations or tie them on to the string, attach to the lollipop sticks and viola! Instant cake banner!
