Celebrate Memorial Day with Cupcake Flag

Last Memorial Day my husband and I were riding our bikes across Italy. On this particular day we came across the Florence American Memorial Cemetery for World War II. It was a humbling experience, as we took the time to remember the fallen soldiers that helped us maintain our freedoms.

Memorial Day has always been a fun day -- BBQs, no work, swimming, etc. But this year, I am going to pause to remember how lucky I am to live in this wonderful country. Of course, I will still enjoy my BBQs and swimming because that's why those soldiers fought for our country -- so that we can be happy and live how we want.

Cookies and cups has a great cupcake cake design for Memorial Day. The Cupcake Flag is made from 40 cupcakes and thick, homemade buttercream frosting. You can find instructions and more photos on cookies and cups blog.

Happy Memorial Day!
