I have so many ideas in mind: red velvet to cream stuffed or swirly red and white icing ideas...but I also have a budget and limited time. And the husband doesn't have a broad taste palet so I decided to go with simple chocolate chips cupcakes with red/white icing topped with Canadian Flags on toothpicks. I Google-searched high and low looking for free printable Canadian Flags but ended up with nothing. So I said it would be quicker to make them myself. And since I didn't find any fairly quick, I am posting them here to share!
Click HERE to go to download page for the FREE printable template for Canada Day Cupcake Flag. Once there, click the Download button in the top left corner. (if any troubles with DL, let me know. I may have to tweak it later but for now this will do :)
Cupcake Flag Instruction instructions after printing the template above:
1.) Cut down white line in center of the page.
3.) See that massive red block awkward block in the middle of the connected flags? That's where you want to fold it in half. Apply glue to back of paper, then wrap it around your toothpick. I made sure the ends opposite of the toothpick lines up, then smooshed the rest together to make it even.
The above pic is the result! Super cute!
Hope it helps! They were super easy and fun to make, decorate with, and enjoy for day!
