Fourth of July Cupcake Cake

Last night I whipped up this fun dessert for tonight's dinner. It was super easy, and stress-free!

Here's what you do:

  • Bake a batch of 24 cupcakes.
  • Make a x3 batch of this frosting (just to be safe :). Color about a cup blue, a cup and a half red, and leave the rest white.
  • Arrange the cupcakes into a shape of some sort.
  • Fill in all the spaces in between the tops with white frosting, making a somewhat smooth surface to decorate.
  • Take three decorating bags (or large zip top bags) and put a #18 star tip in one and two round #5 tips in the others.
  • Fill the star tip bag with blue, and the others with the red and white.
  • Now, got ahead and decorate! Use your imagination. And remember: it doesn't have to be perfect.

** Have icing left over? Make another batch of cupcakes, cut each in half and ice the middle, putting them together like a sandwich. Wrap them individually, put them in gallon-size zip top bags, then throw them in the freezer. Perfect for Dad's at-work-snacks, or easy afternoon snacks for your sibs! **
