I am sure you can guess when we made these?! At the last minute we decided to have patriotic cupcakes, but didn't realize the only color of sugar we had was red. Quick thinking was required!
Since I didn't relish a trip to the store, I dug around in the craft supplies and found some blue scrap booking paper, a small star cookie cutter and toothpicks from the kitchen. I then traced and cut out a bunch of stars and sandwiched the toothpicks between two stars securing with double-sided tape.
WA-la!! Instant cupcake decorations!
You could do little yellow ducks for a baby shower or flowers for a birthday or cows, dogs, letters or numbers.....the possibilities are limitless.
