So my husband and his flight are working on the 4th of July and I always bring them cupcakes. So i figured i'd do something big for the holiday. I'll be needing to make enough for at least 40 cops, most of them are men, so nothing to girly lol but I need some ideas besides the basic red, white, and blue sprinkles
My hubby is in the AF too. I was as well but I am out now. but I have made quite a few cupcakes for the "guys at the hubby's shop" a few times. What I did was dress up a 9x13 cake board with gumpaste dog tags and combat boots and then made red white and blue firework cupcakes with the grass tip (233). I don't have a picture of it... this was before I started keeping track of all my baking projects. But here is a link to something pretty similar.
I hope the link works. If not just go to flikr and type in firework cupcakes; they are on the second row. I hope this helps get the creative juices flowin'! Good luck =)
