Since we are in the middle of the Olympics here in Vancouver now, these Canada-themed cupcakes seem appropriate! They were for a children's birthday party for some little (but loyal!) Team Canada fans!
The cupcakes were sour cream chocolate cake with a vanilla bean Italian meringue buttercream. There were mini cupcakes for the children and regular size cupcakes for the adults.
There were three different Canada decorations on the cupcakes. At the far left, an example of the red gumpaste maple leaf topper. In the center is the paper Canadian flag. And finally on the right is a cupcake topped with small red maple leaf candies. With our mens' hockey game against the USA only a few hours away, all that is left to say now is...
Go Canada Go!
