School House Rock Cupcake "I'm Just a Bill"

I grew up in the 80's. There was a lot to love about the 80's but I must say that I have fond memories of coming home
from school and watching the ABC "After School Specials"

Remember those....aaahhh they taught me a lot about life.
One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE "After School
Special" shows was 

As your body grows bigger
Your mind grows flowered
It's great to learn
'Cause knowledge is power!
It's Schoolhouse Rocky
That chip off the block
of your favorite schoolhouse
Schoolhouse Rock!

Remember learning how a Bill became a Law?? this BLAST from the PAST.. 

Well, this 4th of July I was thinking of something 
fun and different to do and during one of my reminiscent delusions of grandeur while sleep deprived watching old School House Rock shows on You Tube with Sophia I came up with this...

"I'm Just a Bill...Living on Capital Hill"
Say what you will about "government", may you be RIGHT or LEFT, SQUARE or ROUND, 
I think we can all agree that
our COUNTRY is pretty darn awesome.


This was super EASY..I just wrapped up a rectangle piece of white fondant as a scroll for "Bill" and then used Edible Food Writers on White Fondant for the saying, "I am Just a Bill".  The tassel on Bill is twizzler adhered with a little corn syrup!! The frosting is red buttercream ( recipe of course...) and piped with a Wilton 1M!!
See you all SATURDAY for a fun and EASY
Star Spangled Fruit Tart!!

Such a creatively fun idea! I'd love to be able to say that I grew up in the 80's, unfortunately I can only say that my kids did LOL They enjoyed the afterschool specials as much as you did though :) Enjoy your 4th of July celebrations.
