Switzerland Cupcakes

I bet you all woke up thinking, I want some cupcakes that remind me of Switzerland. 

Right? :)

Last night my husband told me he needed a treat to take to his work party for today. And they needed to be Switzerland-ish. (It's an Olympic-themed party). 


A little short notice but I was up for the challenge.

So I immediately thought of Red Velvet cupcakes. Red! And with some white frosting, it would be perfect. It took me a while to figure out how to get that cross on there, but I finally thought of Twizzlers. Perfect. I just made one strip of licorice and then two smaller parts for the sides of the cross. I think they turned out pretty good.

So, you know, if you ever have to make Switzerland cupcakes, now you can!



Now, don't cheer for Switzerland in the Olympics. It's all about the USA!! :)
(And sorry for the lame pictures, but I had to take the pictures last night. The hubs took them with him this morning.)

  1. Cute cupcakes. Red velvet sounds delicious. Random question: What do you use for your photo editing? Is it online or on your computer? I'm having trouble finding a good one.

    1. Hey Sheri! I use Photoshop but I've heard good things about PicMonkey. There's also Picasa that you download onto your computer. I'm pretty sure that's free.

  3. Oh, so cute! The other day my husband had an Olympic themed party too. He came home from work, & I asked why he had 2 boxes of Zataran's Black Beans & Rice. He said I'm supposed to take something to work tomorrow that represents Mexico. LOL! I told him next time to tell me sooner so I can make something awesome...... like Switzerland cupcakes! Love, Bethany
