I will never be a themed-cupcake blog, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a fun themed party. In fact, some friends of ours just had a surprise birthday party where all the women wore red cocktail dresses and the men white shirts.
U.S. readers: Any guesses as to what hit TV show inspired that party theme?
I do enjoy sophisticated themed food from time to time, and berry season naturally lends itself to our patriotic holidays. Using solid color napkins and tablecloths, you can decorate for quite a few parties without having to have “stars and stripes” decor.
This could also work for Bastille Day, or national holidays in the following (30!) red-white-and-blue flag countries: Australia, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, Faroe Islands, France, Iceland, North Korea, Laos, Luxembourg, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Russia, Samoa, Serbia & Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Taiwan, Thailand, and the U.K.
Assuming you can get the ingredients in North Korea.
This might look like a strawberry shortcake, but it’s more of a light cupcake consistency, with a creamy topping that’s a cross between Cool Whip and frosting. I used these super-cute Wilton Tasty Fill Mini Cake Pans that were provided by Wilton in the Camp Blogaway swag bag, and Driscoll’s provided the berries. You could also do this as a sheet cake or cupcakes, serve the berries and the topping in bowls, and let people build their own dessert.
