Make a Cake Banner for Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day Cake TopperWant to be the hit of the party? Make this too-cute-for-words cake topper

I made this cake that’s free of gluten and refined sugar for a meeting last week. Absolutely no one who knew me was surprised when I brought out a white cake stand, pink cake and Valentine’s Day cake banner, because cutesy decoration is kinda my thing. However, I was a little surprised at how well it went over. My ultra-healthy treats aren’t always the hit of the party but this cake was definitely the exception. I read once that pink makes sweets look irresistible! I think this cake topper definitely proves that true. Everyone couldn’t wait to dig in, and I think the aesthetic presentation played a big part in that.

Ready to make a cake banner? The best part is that’s it’s really easy but looks totally impressive when it’s done.

Step 1: Cut four or five triangles of fabric. The fabric can be of your choice. If you have heaps of fabric scraps like I do, this is a perfect use for them. Upcycle those fabric scraps!

I made the topper the same day and it was ready to go. The tacky glue dries quickly, but you could use hot glue if you want it ready even faster.

    So cute! I love it! What does one do if one’s significant other doesn’t eat sweets, but you still want to make them something and put an adorable banner on it?

      This is such a good point! You could either A) give them a cake anyway and eat it yourself, of B) put the banner on something else they like, such as a steak or smoked salmon. The cake banner would look cute atop many other foods, don’t you think?
