Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes

I made these chocolate cupcakes for the USA/Ghana World Cup game and for the Fourth of July. Even though they looked good, I must not have put enough magic in them because the US team lost...


I used the brush striping method to make red and blue stripes. On some of the cupcakes, I used tip #4B to cover them with stars. I used tip #1M on other cupcakes to frost them with a swirl.

USA! USA! USA!

Happy 4th of July!

Just in time for the long weekend, I found these instructions for making a 5 pointed star in one easy snip. You can even change the proportion of the paper to make stars of various sizes. This is definitely going to come in handy at some point!
