This blog today is dedicated to my husband Kyle who just returned from his second tour in Afghanistan. He was stationed there for 6 months and we couldn't be happier to have him home! It's just a quick blog today - but the best part - it contains a FREEBIE!! :)
I made some quick cupcake toppers to welcome him home and another batch of the ever delicious Red Velvet Cupcakes I made for Valentines that I blogged about here. They were just so good and he wasn't home to share them with us so I wanted to make him a batch of his own.
So the freebie is the file for the cupcake toppers! Just print them out and either cut them with funky scissors or use a 2" circle or scalloped circle cutter. Tape a toothpick or sucker stick to the back and insert in cupcakes! It's super simple and gives them a great look.
If you want your cakes to look like mine I used a pastry bag with tip 1M and piped a "swirl" on the top. Then I added red colored sugar sprinkles, and red white and blue sprinkles to them and added the cupcake topper. I also had some cute aluminum cupcake holders I was going to use but completely forgot.
Get the cupcake topper PDF file here! Just print it in color on your home computer and have fun! I changed one set to just say "welcome home" in case you aren't welcoming "daddy" home! :)
Banner in pics will be in a upcoming blog soon! :) Have fun making your cupcakes or treat bag tags!! And as always thanks for reading my blog and feel free to pass on to EVERYONE! :)
