The sweets table probably gets plenty of attention at your 4th of July gatherings so make this frequented spot a place to let the festive nature shine. Add some personality to your baked goods with patriotic flag and stars decorations to sit on top of your cakes, cupcakes and brownies. No need to fuss around creating shapes with messy icing, simply place the toppers on each treat for a mess-free design. You can even personalize the cupcake wrappers for a friendly celebration. Once all your baked goods are ready to be set out show off your handiwork on a cupcake server.
Don’t make your guests wait for the fireworks to see some sparkle. If the anticipation of cake time didn’t get guests amped up enough, a little sparkle certainly will. Put a star-shaped sparkler on top of your cake or cupcake tower and watch your guests’ eyes light up. Sparkler candles are a great way to add some extra excitement to the cake-cutting ritual. You don’t have to stick to red, white and blue. There is an assortment of colored candles to add a little color to the party.
