Happy Australia Day!!

By on Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Today is our 4th of July, well, actually tomorrow is!  26th January every year Australians celebrate what it is to be Australian.  We approach this, in much the same way as everything else, with great gusto! There will be burnt sausages, prawns, seafood, lots of food, fireworks and of course cupcakes!

I created these cupcakes for the kids at the BBQ we are attending today.  I created the fondant flags first by cutting it and twisting around a toothpick then piped the details onto them.  Unfortunately there is only six points on the bottom star which means I have lost an Australian State or Territory (as there is one point for each), and my red frosting bled into my white, but I am pretty happy with them!  And most importantly the kids will LOVE them as they are my favorite chocolate recipe with a chocolate ganache.
