I love a good cake topper because it can completely take a cake to the next level. Obviously, the most important part is how good the cake tastes, but we need a cute little topper too, right? My DIY cake topper can easily be made in under 30 minutes – and no fancy cutting machines required. This cake banner definitely added the finishing touch to my daughter’s 1st birthday cake! And yes – the cake was good too!
The final post of the blue and pink birthday party crafts. I’m not even gonna lie, I am sick of all this party stuff. I was tired of it about 10 minutes after the party ended. And that was a month ago. But, this DIY cake bunting topper is adorable and simple to make, so I had to share.
Please disregard the sloppiness of the icing on the cake there. That would be where part of the cake fell off (my fault) and where my wonderful mother-in-law did the best she could do to salvage my mistake. Bless her.

Materials you’re gonna need for the adorable bunting cake topper:
-Cardstock in your choice of color (Mine came from Hobby Lobby)
-Letter Stickers (These too came form Hobby Lobby)
-Ribbon (I used this kind.)
-Straws or some other stick or tubular device-thing-a-ma-jig to attach the bunting to and stick in the cake
You will need to sketch out a flag bunting shape to use as a template. I did this with a ruler. Once it is sketched out, cut out the template and trace as many letters as will be on your bunting on the back of the card stock (this keeps any lines from being seen on the front and if you have glitter card stock like I did, you can’t really draw on glitter.)
Cut out all the little flags and attach your sticker letters on them.
