Turning cupcakes in sparkling patriotic star decorations that liven up your table is pretty simple to do. All that you need are colorful printed straws, star shaped marshmallows, melted white chocolate and either glittery disco dust or mini sprinkles. The marshmallows are placed on the ends of the cut straws, dipped in the melted chocolate, and then, once the chocolate has hardened, brushed with corn syrup and dipped in the disco dust or sprinkles. Slide the straw into the center of your baked and frosted cupcakes before serving.

Cupcake toppers veer from the simple to the complicated. Some contain a number of fondant bits, assembled to look like a sculpture or fancy piece of art – one that is edible, of course. These flower cake topped fall into the former category, and are simple to assemble. They consist of a fake flower that was been washed well. The stem is covered in a piece of wax paper just in case, and to prevent the stem from getting frosting all over it. Push the stem into the top of a cupcake and your work is done!

There is no better way to celebrate the warm spring weather than by baking a batch of fruit-filled cupcakes. These raspberry cupcakes with pink buttercream icing and lacy chocolate hearts (because you can never have too much chocolate) are the perfect things to make this time of year. The batter contains 12 ounces of raspberries, some pureed and some simply chopped up, along with flour, sugar, whole milk and a host of other ingredients. Bake, frost, decorate and serve with a smile!
