Cakes With Bunting

cakes with bunting

Cakes with bunting are a huge design trend at the moment. Nothing says “party-time” quite like a bit of bunting so it makes a great decoration for a cake for any occasion. It works particularly well as a side design and is very easy to make: just cut triangles of coloured sugarpaste and line them up side-by-side in a garland design, or you can use your sugarcraft gun/sugar extruder to create a line of sugarpaste to hang them from. Either method is just as effective, but the first method is the simplest and quickest.

If you’d like patterned flags on your bunting, you can use edible cake transfers to achieve this look.  The two beautiful cakes above are by the talented teams at Jelly Cake (left) and Squires Kitchen (right).

We have two more beautiful example of cakes with bunting side designs below by Edible Art Cakes (left) and by Jelly Cake again (right).
