A bunting wedding cake makes a fabulous centrepiece for a summer wedding with a garden party, carnival or village fete theme. Both of the cakes above feature piped rosettes as featured in our Buttercream Piping Series (Part 1).
The cake on the left is decorated with pretty semi-circle shaped bunting made from edible transfer sheets and the super cute cake topper is made with striped vintage straws. The cake on the right features a pretty posy of garden flowers in a short vase as a cake topper, which is a simple, elegant touch. Just make sure to dowel the top tier if sitting a vase on top.

Below we have two beautiful “summer fete” style bunting wedding cakes in pretty pastels by Rachelle’s Cakes, UK.
Sarah Edwards Cakes have designed a beautiful floral wedding cake adorned with summer bunting (below left), while Jelly Cake UK have incorporated a vintage cake stand in their bunting cake design (below right). For more details on this cake stand, see our feature here: Vintage Wedding Cake Stand.
Below, we have two lavishly decorated bunting wedding cakes below by Cotton & Crumbs (left) and The Cute Cupcake Company (right). The floral details and vintage patterns on these cakes can be re-created using cake painting techniques or edible transfer sheets. For more on these techniques, see our features here: Hand-Painted Cakes and Edible Icing Sheets – Instant Cake Art.
Our final two bunting wedding cakes are accessorised with beautiful vintage tea cup toppers from The Cute Cupcake Company (below left) and by Gulnaz Mitchell of Heavenly Cakes 4U, New Zealand (below right).
