Since I had a 3-day weekend off from grad school, I took the opportunity to make some cupcakes. I was encouraged to make 4th of July cupcakes, since it is, in fact, the 4th of July. They aren't my favorite, but they are never-the-less festive.
They are made with a regular cupcake on the bottom, and a smaller cupcake on top. Then red, white, and blue frosting was squiggled on. The top is some melting wafers which were piped out onto waxed paper.
These cupcakes mark my 25th cupcake addition to this site!
