Happy Memorial Day!!!!

Standard

My Daughter and I decided we would bake cupcakes decorated red, white, and blue for Memorial Day!!!!!  Fun!!!

The frosting was great, my normal cream cheese frosting.  But we all didn’t care for the cake recipe we used. It was too dense,  not fluffy.  Waaahhhh!!!  But they sure did look cute and festive!!!!
