There are hundreds of flyer templates available, and each of them can be customized to your needs, but if you want something designed with your theme in mind, you can type "bake sale" in the search field or go to the categories in the left.

Step 4

Most bake sale flyer templates include some patterns that you can use as a background. And if your bake sale has a different theme, you can upload your own pattern. Just click Custom Image and select your image. I used this cake patterns set.

Note: the bakery flyer used in this tutorial is no longer available. But you can choose any bakery flyer template you love, like this cute bakery flyer template.

Once it's uploaded to the flyer maker, change the size to crop the pattern, and then click Crop. Give it a second to update.

Step 6

The icon above the text can be customized as well. There are many icons that you can use here, but it's also possible to upload your own. Do it the same way as previously: upload your image and crop it. I used an image from this dessert icons set.
