Celebrations: cupcake candle flags

Pin It

Cupcake and cake flags are so popular right now and the sky is the limit when it comes to decorating sweet treats with flags. I love using these tall super skinny birthday candles for celebrations so I thought it would be fun to incorporate the candle and the flag.

I made a few different types of flags. Leaf green striped flags with a tiny piece of matching velvet ribbon for Easter treats.

Pretty in pink birthday flags with tiny crepe paper streamers.

All occasion “I {heart} U” flags.

This “Take One” flag would be fun for a buffet table or cupcake stand.

Just remember to leave enough room at the top for the candle to burn.  

Have a happy day and thanks for visiting.
