Vintage banner cake toppers are a great way to dress up single tier cakes, especially since textured buttercream cakes are so in vogue at the moment for weddings and parties. Whether you go with a petal piped cake, buttercream ruffles or piped roses, a hand-crafted cake topper adds that extra wow factor to top off your cake.
For those in the cake decorating business, a simple extra like a cake banner suitable for the occasion makes the final product much more high-end and therefore allows for a greater profit margin for your business.
The two beautiful vintage banner cake toppers above are by Better Off Wed and are available to purchase through their Etsy store here: Better Off Wed
Our second example above is from Etsy store: The First Snow
