Easy Fireworks Cupcake Toppers for the Fourth of July

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Are you ready for the 4th of July?  If you're still setting the menu for your cookout or are deciding what to bring to the potluck, try these quick and easy patriotic fireworks cupcake toppers.

They are SO easy to make, and I love the way they sparkle!  Best part?  I made them with materials I got at the dollar store.

I made some chocolate cupcakes with my favorite crazy cake recipe, and just gave it a simple swirl of buttercream icing and added some star sprinkles and disco dust edible glitter.  But if you don't feel like baking, you could easily pick up the cupcakes from the grocery store and just add some wow-factor by topping them with the fireworks cupcake toppers.  

No judgement.  It's summer!  I live in Phoenix, so all I want to do is hide in the air conditioning or swim in my neighbor's pool.  Turning on the oven is not high on my list of priorities, even for cupcakes.
