To make my cupcake design coordinate with my cupcake wrappers and the blog party theme, I chose my favorite decorating medium, chocolate. In this case, I used white chocolate to pipe swirly cupcake toppers which where sprinkled with red and blue jimmies to give the illusion of flying sprinkles. These toppers are super easy to create and will add a touch of whimsy to your Fourth of July festivities.
To display my cupcakes, I created a simple display using a plate that just happened to match my cupcake wrapper. I’ll admit, aside from my elaborate Halloween displays, I don’t go overboard when creating a place to serve my treats. I just grab whatever I can find in my cupboards, and work with it.
The food should be star of the show, so using a plain background paper and a simple plate, is enough to show off these festive cupcakes.

Refrigerate for a few minutes, just long enough for the white chocolate to set.
