Step 4
Frost the entire cake. 
Step 5

Step 7
Cut about 12" of twine and tie the end of the twine onto one end of a plastic dowel.  
Step 8
String the tassels onto the twine and cut the tassels so they hang above the cake, but do not touch. 
Step 9
Tie the end of the twine to one end of the second dowel. 
Step 10
Push both dowels into cake on opposite sides so the tassel banner hangs across the cake. 
Step 11
