Pennants (sometimes called cake bunting) are such a festive way to decorate cupcakes and cakes. I’ve loved the examples of this that I’ve seen on Kara’s Party Ideas, The TomKat Studio, and an entire Pinterest Board by Kiki La Ru. I’ve noticed that the pennants are always tied to dowels, skewers, or straws. I thought that it might be cute to tie them to something edible. In the image above, I tied the pennants to my homemade Pocky Sticks!
Here are a few other edible stick ideas to inspire you: lollipops, reception sticks, pretzels, Pirouettes, KitKats, and rock candy. Leave your edible stick ideas in the comments!
To make the pennants, fold red, white, and blue paper in half. Cut out a row of triangles along the crease of each sheet (you’ll end up with diamonds). Glue the diamonds on a piece of string and tie the string to your stick of choice.
