Easy Flag Cupcake for the 4th of July!

Hey long lost friends!!

I am back from the lap of luxury and right into the 
swing of the sweetness of life. 

It was good to go, but good to be back.

Here is an easy flag cupcake topper that you can pull off
for the 4th of July with ease and flair. 

4th of July Flag Cupcake

I used a Nilla Wafer and cut it with a kitchen 
scissors in the shape of a rectangle. 

After smearing it with white frosting, I applied the stripes
with red as you see here and if memory serves me right, I used a size 3 round wilton tip for the stripes and 22 for the blue flower. 

I had white sugar pearls on hand so it seemed like a good idea 
that one go in the center as you 
see here but you can pipe the flag anyway you see fit!  

I used wilton premade tube frosting in the blue
and red colors and my standby oh so yummy buttercream recipe from My Cake School!!

After placing the flag cookie on the cupcake
I finished it with a lollipop stick, cut to size.


Have fun!

Very cute - I like that you used chocolate frosting because it made it pop more. Hope your trip was filled with relaxation and wonderful memories!

It's nice to see you back, Trish. Throw a little maple leaf on top of those cupcakes and, voilà, you can celebrate Canada Day on the first!
