Yesterday I had a little time on my hands and was feeling crafty, so I decided to take a crack at making some cake decorations for the wedding. I saw this picture on Once Wed a few months ago and immediately knew I wanted to something like it for our celebration:
We’re going to have all kinds of different flavored cakes in various sizes with different styles of white frosting, and I wanted to make some little flags to go on top like the ones in these pictures. Mine aren’t quite as ethereal as the pictured cakes, but I’m pleased with them.
Make Cake Flags
- white or cream felt
- vintage lace (or new lace)
- fusible webbing (this is a clear sheet that bonds fabric together when ironed. you can find it at any craft or fabric store)
- 10 inch wooden skewers
- needle and thread
Step One: Layer fusible webbing on top of felt and vintage lace on top of that (each should be roughly the same size). Iron the fabric “sandwich” until bonded.
To get somewhat of an idea about what these would look like on the cake, I trimmed the skewers to various sizes and inserted them in a pot pie we had in the fridge (don’t worry, I replaced the skewers afterwards).
