By Kami Bigler
Cake bunting is a fun trend going on right now, adding height and dimension to any simple cake. The great thing about it is that your cake decorating skills can be mediocre. This takes the attention away from the frosting and moves it to the top of the cake.
Most commonly used are little triangle pennant flags, but why not add your own touch with little die-cut shapes or stickers? If you are into scrap booking or paper crafts, this craft should be an easy and fun one.
