I have a confession to make...
I am an anglophile.
Wait, don't run away!
That just means that I am obsessed with Great Britain and all things British.
I walked the streets of little villages and rode my bike through big city roundabouts.
I saw amazing history and architecture without ever going to a museum.
I learned to recognize what county someone was from by their accent.
I ate bangers & mash, beans on toast and trifle with clotted cream.
I got rained on a LOT.

Basically, I got to know Great Britain and it's people really well...
And I love them!!
As you can guess, I am thrilled that the 2012 Summer Olympics are in London!
You better believe that I will be glued to the TV, waiting to catch a glimpse of the country I love.
And I made Union Jack Cupcake Toppers in preparation...
You will need:
A batch of frosted cupcakes
White candy melts or almond bark
Wilton "Red-Red" icing color gel
Wilton "Royal Blue" icing color gel
Decorating bags fitted with small round tip (Wilton #2)
Download and print out this template:
Tape your template on to a piece of cardboard or the back of a cookie sheet.
Tape wax paper over the template.
Melt some candy melts according to package directions, and divide into three bowls.
Leave one bowl white, color one red and one blue.
Place each color in a separate decorating bag.
Trace the white parts of the flags first. Pipe a few lines at a time, then use a toothpick to push the candy melts into corners and straighten up lines.
Next, fill in the red parts of the flags.
Finally, fill in the blue parts of the flags. Place them in the refrigerator to set up.
When your flags have hardened, carefully peel them off the wax paper.
Put a dollop of candy melts on the right side, and press a lollipop stick into it.
After the sticks have set up, Insert a flag into the top of each cupcake.
These cuties would be a fun treat for your Olympic Opening Ceremonies party. :0)
