I really like the colorful cupcakes at i heart cuppycakes…the rainbow cupcakes, but since this was a red and white team I stuck with just the 2 colors.
The swirled icing came out better than I thought it would. I have read about doing the icing by putting the food coloring inside the bag and then loading the bag with white frosting and then piping it out, but I just dyed my icing red and loaded the bag half white, half red and piped it out…it was cute!
I wished I had taken a picture of the cupcake in half…but I didn’t have one to spare
I also realized as I was icing them that these would be great for 4th of July…I didn’t have any all-blue sprinkles on hand, but I did have some M&M’s…you could make a blue star topper out of fondant and that would be super cute too!
