cherry cupcake
Of all the things George Washington is remembered for, there’s always that darn cherry tree. Did it really happen? Who cares; any excuse to make cupcakes! Consider adding cherry flavoring or filling to these cupcakes to complete the feeling. You don’t have to wait for Presidents’ Day to make these cupcakes. They’d be great for any cherry themed occasion, from gambling to a kids’ party.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); white frosting; pastry bag and 1M star tip; gummy cherry with stem.
How to Make It: First, make swirl with 1M star tip: 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. Add gummy cherry and that’s it!

cupcakes with red swirl and candy cherry
These pink and red cupcakes with a swirl design are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day.
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); icing tinted pink; red writing icing or red icing in pastry bag with round tip #3; round red candy such as sour ball; toothpick.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake pink. Pipe small red circle near center top of cupcake. Pipe two or three more circles around this one. Using toothpick, pull red icing outward from center, wipe off toothpick, and then pull red icing upward from outermost ring. Alternate this technique all around the cupcake. (It’s a variation of a spider web.) Place red candy ball on top of cupcake.
