  • Layer borders, banners, and stars together as shown using sugar glue.
  • Layer borders and banners to cake as shown.
  • Layer best dad phrases together. Stand phrase on top of the cake as shown.
  • Paint toothpicks with food gel. Let dry. Attach toothpicks to backs of stars. Place on top of cake as shown.
  • To decorate cupcakes, brownies, or cookies, cut similar icons at desired sizes. Layer together and place on top of the goodies as shown.
