Cupcake Tuesday~Memorial Day Cupcakes

Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday!   If you are new here, grab a cup of tea or a glass of milk and enjoy a cupcake!

Summertime is upon us here in Indiana. Do you have a Memorial Day Cookout to go to? I sure hope so, because I have the perfect Memorial Day Cupcakes for you.

Picnic Cupcakes for Memorial Day  :: on

How about Hamburgers with a side of Corn on the Cob? And it wouldn’t be a picnic without ants, right? Once again, I started with the ideas from the What’s New, Cupcake? and Hello, Cupcake books. I also found the hamburger cupcakes on Flickr.

Would you like to learn how to create these fun and easy cupcakes? Great, I made a How-to Video to help.

How fun! I think they would be a hit at any Memorial Day get together, summer picnic or even Fourth of July party!
