Hooray For Cupcakes!

Last week I was craving cupcakes. We don’t make them very often (okay, almost never) but I really wanted some. On Sunday we were having a church potluck and so guess what we brought? Cupcakes :)

Besides wanting cupcakes, I also wanted to play with my paper pack that I recently got and so I decided to add little flags to the cupcakes. A bit much for a potluck, maybe, but sometimes adding something special to ordinary things makes it that much more fun!

Here are some pictures:

The back of the flags all said, “enjoy”

To make the flags all you have to do is cut paper into strips, snip the ends like a reverse arrow point and punch two little holes on the ends to thread a toothpick through. Then curl the paper to create the little wave. Super easy :)

By the way, the cupcakes were awesome! I wanted to try something different so I got a recipe from marthastewart.com for snickerdoodle cupcakes. Seriously, the BOMB!!! Only I didn’t use the frosting that was recommended because I didn’t have enough eggs. I used this frosting. Mmmm… I may have to make another batch :)
