Colorful Cake Flags

With the fourth of July coming up in just 2 weeks! Why not celebrate the upcoming tribute to our American flag – with cake flags!?! With just a little paper you can turn any cake (homemade or store bought) into an Independence Day celebration. I updated the idea of a tradition cake flag by adding in hot pink, turning the blue into teal, and matching it with polka dots. Lining the cake with red twizzlers, and including a bit of golden glitter reminds me of my love for fireworks. Stars and stripes forever!

To line the cake in Twizzlers – cut a large package of the candy in half and place around the cake.

To make the paper flags you will need; paper in various shapes and textures, scissors, bamboo kitchen skewers, a ruler, and glue.

Start by cutting out the paper flag shape. I used a pointed flag and an indented flag and mixed sizes and shapes for this cake top creation. Turn the paper over to the backside and trace out the flag designs with a ruler. Cut out as many flag as possible – the more the merrier!

Glue the flags onto the bamboo skewers, layer colors and sizes to get an exploding look. Once dried, place the bamboo skewers into the cakes for a fresh and stylish way to celebrate our country’s greatest day.
