"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

How to decorate the Red, White, and Blue Cupcake:

Step 1: Prepare a large piping bag with a large, round tip (I used a 1A).

Step 2: Use a paintbrush to paint stripes of color on the inside of the bag starting near the tip and extending 4 or 5 inches up the bag (I used Wilton gel colors, one stripe of red and one of blue on opposite sides.

Step 3: Fill the bag carefully with white frosting.


Step 4: Pipe the frosting in a swirl pattern starting at the outer edge of the cupcake. The colors will be picked up by the frosting. Do not turn the cupcake. It takes practice.
