Make your own bunting to top your cake using patterned washi tape!
To make: fold 6cm-long strips of various tapes over a 20cm piece of twine so that it sticks to itself. Cut in a triangle to make a flag shape. Use a hot glue gun to stick the bunting on to two wooden skewers. Place gently on the top of your cake
