Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with festive cupcakes featuring the colors of the Mexican flag. (Tip: You can buy little Mexican flag picks or simply search the Web for printable flags and make your own using toothpicks.)

What You Need: 1 cupcake; white or off-white frosting; green sugar; red sugar; Mexican flag pick; strip of cardstock or index card; scissors.

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Cut a strip from cardstock or index card about 3/4″ wide. Holding strip slightly above cupcake to block off the center, sprinkle green sugar on the left side of the cupcake and red sugar on the right side. Add Mexican flag pick to center.
