Cake and Food Flags and Toppers

A great way to decorate cupcakes, chocolate dipped strawberries, bananas and marshmallows or the odd meat ball... any kind of finger food just needs a food flag or topper.

Use this idea for a themed event or just because you like to add a bit of fun and colour to your party.

Cake and Food Flags and Toppers

You will need the following:

  • Mini cocktail sticks or toothpicks
  • Glue or Double sided sticky tape

Any of the items below, depending on your toppers:

  • Decoupage images, table confetti, washi tape, tissue or colourful paper.

If you are making food flags, you can use either washi paper or vinyl tape. Wrap around the top of your wooden stick and snip into your desired shape.

If you are making cake toppers, use either old fashioned decoupage images and secure with 2 images stuck together with double sided sticky tape/ glue and a wooden stick secured in the middle.

Or use table confetti shapes or your own cut shapes secured to the cocktail stick with a piece of sticky tape on the back.

We would recommend using 2 images back to back where possible, though using ‘old fashioned’ decoupage scrapbook images are strong and work well as just a single image.
