The Fourth of July is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning! I’ve seen so many cute ideas floating out there in blogland, but I thought I’d add another little something for all of the cupcakers…
If you follow my blog or are a member of our site, you know that I L-O-V-E a good cake or cupcake topper. I have a couple to show you today, and a few cute designs too that I hope you’ll like.
First up—Probably the easiest one of the day! I’m all for shortcuts if they are cute :0) — I went to Michael’s today hoping that I would find some 4th of July star garland, and they didn’t let me down–hooray!!
This is just like the wired garland that you can find at Christmas—18 feet worth, and under $2. :0) While you’re there, pick up some lollipop sticks!
Next up, let’s make some chocolate stars!
Grab some candy melts or candy coating, a parchment lined cookie sheet, and a piping bag & Wilton tip 3. (The tip is optional. You could also just snip a tiny hole in your bag.)
Next, it’s time for some piping! I draw stars the same way that I did when I was 5–I cannot freehand a star to save my life. :0) –I didn’t even color them in! They’ll be cute, I promise.
So let’s take a look at what we have so far…
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you see something that you’d like to try. Check back in later in the week to see what we’re up to! :0)
