I love anything that professes to be sweet and easy. This double cake bunting fits that to a “T”! It is a quick and simple project that will not disappoint the next time you have something special to celebrate! The best part is that you can use your fabric scraps and really snazz up a store-bought cake. Those are a huge plus for me and anyone else who may be lacking a few baking skills!
Cake Bunting Tutorial
matching embroidery floss
2 wooden skewers or dowels
hot glue gun
I think it is best to go ahead and cut your triangles first. I used 13 triangles that were 1 inch across the top and 1 1/2 inches on the side. You should iron them at this point to make them nice and crisp. Then, cut two equal pieces of embroidery floss about 24 inches long. Now we can start putting it together!
The first step is to dab a strip of hot glue across the top of the triangle. Quickly lay the center of the embroidery floss across the glue as shown above. Continue with the other triangles and make them meet tip to tip on each side. You will have six triangles on the lower strand and five triangles on the top strand.
You will attach the top strand to the dowels. First, decide how far apart you want your dowels to be. I used 9 inches for a ten inch cake. You will tie one side to the left dowel with less than an inch between the dowel and first triangle. You will do the same on the right side with the last triangle. No need to tie a bow at this point, but I did add a little bit of glue to make sure it didn’t slide down and trimmed the excess thread.
To add the second strand do the same as the first. You will want to leave about 11/2 inches between the dowel and the first and last triangle this time. Tie in a bow and trim the thread and dowels to your liking.
