I have not baked in quite some time, but I am hoping to do some this weekend. One idea that I have seen around the blogging world that I love is the cupcake flag! I posted a while back, about my attempt for a birthday party. I thought they came out quite well.
Here is a Microsoft Publisher document for you to create your own flags. Download, add your own text (and/or background), and print. Cut out the flags, and fold in half. Attach the flags to toothpicks - I would recommend double sided tape - glue dots are too bulky even the thin ones. Have a great weekend. I am working on some end-of-the-year posts for you - all my favorite images in one post.
