Celebrate Cupcake Pick

Here is a project even the kids could help you cre­ate. Bak­ing, icing and dec­o­rat­ing cup­cakes is always fun no mat­ter the age. I think a few dozen cup­cakes accent­ed with this cup­cake top­per and dis­played on a table would be adorable. You know your guests will love snag­ging these treats. You could even type or print dif­fer­ent words describ­ing your July 4th cel­e­bra­tion. Below is a list of words I com­piled that cer­tain­ly describes this very impor­tant hol­i­day.
