One thought on “Patriotic Cheese Cake

  1. The starting of the cake toppers was done with the wedding cakes, but with time
    and huge popularity, it became a part of decoration in
    many other occasions where cake is used. Let it cool down for about
    30 minutes before taking it out of the pan or adding frosting.
    Frost the cupcakes in different colors using frosting and food coloring.
