Even though we don't celebrate Independence Day here in the UK I couldn't resist using taking the opportunity to design a little project for my American crafty friends. This little fella is patriotic with his red, white & blue fondant and a star on top to finish. This fun little cupcake is 9.5cm and designed to be made from felt.
