Lady Liberty Cupcakes

20120625-142523.jpg

Make this a monumental Fourth of July with this Liberty Torch, a sweet addition to any Independence Day gathering.

What you’ll need
Cake mix
Flat-bottom ice cream cones
Yellow or orange frosting
Sugar wafers
Orange and red decorators’ gel
How to make it
To make a batch, prepare your favorite cake mix according to the package directions and spoon it into flat-bottomed ice-cream cones (a regular-size box of cake mix will make enough for about 24), filling the cones no more than halfway.
Set the cones upright in a baking pan, supporting them with crumpled aluminum foil. Bake according to the cake mix directions, following the time recommended for cupcakes. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely, then frost each one with yellow or orange frosting.
To make each torch’s flame, cut 2 sugar wafers in half at an angle and stick them into the cupcake. Add orange and red frosting or decorators’ gel, and you’ve got one hot — and patriotic — dessert.
