Today is a day of rememberance and also a day to eat cupakes! With so many different ways to decorate a cupcake I'm right there with you in having the difficult task of choosing just the right cupcake design. My advice is to keep it simple. Don't overload your cupcake with too many different designs, one will do perfectly. Also, keep your color scheme to a minimum. Red, white and blue is the perfect color scheme. If you're making a lot of cupcakes don't give every single cupcake a different design. Pick your top three favorite and stick with that. Too many designs is overwhelming to the baker and to your guests.
Here are some good websites that have cute patriotic cupcake ideas.
