Red velvet with cream cheese frosting
Bought some edible gold dust at Michael's! Their cake decorating section is so awesome.
Then, I took a piece of cardstock (ahem, one of those Bed, Bath, & Beyond coupons I get in the mail), and traced a star on it (from this template, or just draw one). Cut out the star, so you are left with a stencil.
Carefully set the stencil on top of the first cupcake, brushed over some gold dust, and even more carefully lifted the stencil up off the cupcake. This pulled at the frosting some, and made a few of them not such recognizable stars, but I tried!!
and there you have it.
Cupcakes fit for a red carpet!
Enjoy your party!!
