Columbus Day celebrates the day Christopher Columbus set foot in the Americas, so celebrating with some fantastic cupcakes seems only fitting. The discovery of the Americas is one of man's greatest achievements to date, and is definitely something that should not go unnoticed. This holiday, celebrated both officially and unofficially world-wide, is a good excuse as any to get baking some spectacular cupcakes with great party supplies that will have everyone hoping even more lands are discovered!
A great recipe for your Columbus Day cupcakes is below. It's the decoration part, which are red, white and blue fireworks, perfect for celebrating such a joyous occasion!
To make the Columbus Day cupcakes, all you need is your favorite cake or cupcake recipe (any flavor is fine!) and a white-colored frosting. Divide your frosting into thirds, and leave one third white, dye one third blue, and dye one third red.
To make the fireworks, all you need is a special cake decorating tip. You can use a star tip, round tip, large tip, and lots of other tips. Generally anything will work just fine.
Start with the middle of your cupcake, and make a circle of red with your decorating tip in the middle of each cupcake. Do a circle of white around each with the same decorating tip. Finish it off with a circle of blue around the edge.
If you've used a star decorating tip on your Columbus Day cupcakes, these circles should be jaggy and pointing upwards, resembling red white and blue fireworks!
Alternatively, you could go for a more easier approach for your Columbus Day cupcakes. Pick up a pint of blueberries and a pint of raspberries (you can also use strawberries). After frosting your cupcakes, decorate each one with a circle of blueberries, and place a raspberry in the center of each circle. These are some seriously simple, tasty and easy all-American cupcakes.
