Are you all as excited as I am for the 4th this weekend?! Its my favorite holiday (well, after Christmas). I've got lots of fun projects to get done this week in preparation for Saturday. I wanted to share these cupcakes I made last year. I got the idea from Martha and they were really simple to make.You will need:
I just bought white cake mix and buttercream icing in a jar...but I suppose you could make yours from scratch! For the red stripes use Twizzler Pull & Peels, pulled apart and cut up into two different lengths. I also just used blue icing in those little tubes you get in the baking isle at the grocery store for the blue dots. Its kind of hard to get the lines as straight as Martha's, but I don't guess it matters. Here are how mine turned out last year. They were a big hit at the party!
