USA Memorial Day / American Independence Day Cupcakes


This is a bit of a bumper post as I try to cover two American events with the same cupcake decorating ideas; Memorial Day (previously known as Decoration Day) and the fourth of July, Independence Day. Both of these days are traditionally celebrated with the US colours of red, white and blue – which is evident in these cupcakes:

Cookies and Cups created these M&M topped cupcakes as part of their patriotic range. If you look carefully you’ll see that not only is the buttercream frosting a swirl of white and red, but the sponge is too. You could also alternate the red with blue and top with red M&Ms

Lizespo on Flickr has also gone for a multi-colours swirl, but with all three colours and little American flags for each one.

The beauty of July is that some wonderful red and blue fruits are in season, and they can be used perfectly for this theme (and taste great too). This cake from Getty Images makes perfect use of a single strawberry.
