Bunting Cake Toppers

Bunting cake toppers are the perfect way to add a touch of vintage chic to your cake design, whether it’s a simple birthday cake like the cake (above left) from Kara’s Party Ideas or a splendid spring wedding cake like the vintage design by Rachelle’s Beautiful Bespoke Cakes (formerly Planet Cake UK) above right.

Bunting cake toppers are so simple to make and you’ll find a tutorial here to help you. Vintage candy-striped straws can be bought online: Vintage Party Straws, but wooden skewers will work just as well also for a more rustic look.

While vintage pattern fabrics/paper make beautiful flags for bunting cake toppers, you can also add a greeting to your topper like the super cute examples below from The Frosted Petticoat (left) and Style Me Pretty (right).

You can jazz up your bunting cake topper even more with the addition of pom poms or even using replica garden twigs for a rustic finish – food safe of course! (Image source: Pinterest).
