Election Day star cupcakes

patriotic star cupcakes
Whether you’re in a state voting on Super Tuesday, or if you’re reading this post on the 4th of July, or even in the November general election, these patriotic star-themed cupcake are just the ticket. Now your toughest decision will be chocolate or vanilla, or perhaps a third-party cupcake candidate such as lemon or devil’s food.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); white frosting; candy stars; 1M metal icing tip; pastry bag.
How to Make It: Fit 1M metal tip to disposable pastry bag (the 1M tip is larger than standard size; a disposable bag means you won’t have to cut so far into a cloth bag). Fill pastry bag halfway with white icing (we used canned icing, but homemade may make for more appealing, stiffer swirls). While squeezing out icing, move arm in a circular motion and cover the top of the cupcake with a swirl of icing. Then, starting a little bit in from the edge this time, make a second swirl on top of the first one. Immediately add candy stars (we used Wilton brand). If the 1M swirl sounds confusing, stay tuned, as Easycupcakes.com will have more detailed instructions soon.
