Adelaide requested cupcakes many, many times for her birthday, and so I - spotting a gluten-free mix at the market - was inspired by and made these ones in miniature. They turned out far better than I expected, yummy, light and moist. No one could even tell that they were gluten-free, and, oh my was it ever nice for me to eat a cupcake once again!
After mixing up and baking the cupcakes, Adelaide and I were inspired and so we decided to make some little cupcake flags together. She art directed (barked orders at) me for the colours and patterns, I cut them out, she glue-sticked them, and we folded them over the sticks together. She's getting quite good with her little fingers - soon I'll be able to really put her to work for me!
Addie and I would like to share our cupcake flags, so that of you wish you can make some of your own. Here is a .pdf file for you to download and print out. They are quite simple and only require cutting, toothpicks, a gluestick, and little bit of time to make.
You may download the file here:
From the template: These little cupcake flags are simple but they can make homemade cupcakes even nicer. They are perfect for a child’s birthday, shower, picnics, or any other occasion. I used these flags for mini-cupcakes, but if you wish you can scale them to any size. You can also use a flag as a template to cut and make flags from other papers, such as recycled wrapping paper, wallpaper, magazines, maps, or security envelopes. Or maybe even scraps of cute fabrics!
Adelaide and I very much hope that you like them, please let us know!
