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.
