Add the perfect finishing touch to a gorgeous big day bake with some rustic paper and string.

To make the cake wrap:

Cut a strip of brown paper that fits your cake. Wrap it around the cake and secure with coloured twine. For the favour bags, stamp the word
of your choice on to paper stickers and fix on the front.
