I chose a birthday cake based on its taste, but it was itty bitty –too small for a proper birthday message. I asked the bakery to write the recipient’s name on the cake, and then figured out a way to add the “Happy Birthday.”
I made a mini-bunting out of origami paper, cutting the triangles from a little template I made. I wrote a letter on each flag with a sharpie and then strung them together with needle and thread, one thread for each word. Then I poked chopsticks into the cake and tied the bunting to each chopstick.
