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)
