Fourth of July Bunting & Rosettes Cupcakes
These bunting and rosette inspired Red, White & Blue Cupcakes are quite delightful! To achieve this look, you’ll need a 3-Color Coupler piping bag, like this one.

Simple, fresh, and delicious. All you need are some white cupcakes, cream cheese icing, and red & blue fruits including strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries.
Star Spangled Cupcakes
Vanilla swirl cupcakes with red, white and blue frosting, topped with sprinkles and a star.
Patriotic Stars Sugar Cookie Cupcakes
These spectacular Independence Day themed cupcakes are topped with colorful cookie treats, giving you two desserts in one. The cupcakes are baked in Wilton Blue Celebration ColorCups for an additional festive flourish.
Red, White and Blue Roses
To achieve this look you’ll need to fill from the tip to the end of the piping back with red & blue icing on the outsides and then white in the middle.
