Memorial Day

I love these miniature decorative pinwheels(they actually work!) that I found at Wal Mart, of all places. These cupcakes are made from a box from top to bottom, but I just wanted to feature the pinwheels and make a little fun treat for Memorial Day, lickety-split!

  4. The cupcakes are so festive. Better to bake with a box and have time for some fun than to spend more time than you have on scratch. There will always be another occasion to bake.
