    The cupcake craze may or may not be over, but in my house, they will never go out of style! Cupcakes are our go-to birthday treat at school and, quite often, for our home parties as well. Kids love to help decorate them, and they look just as appealing no matter how unrestrained your little assistants are with sprinkles and toppings.

    Cupcakes just say "fun,” and that's especially true for these extra-cute and festive ones using red and blue sprinkles for a patriotic effect. You could adapt these almost endlessly ... school colors for a graduation party, team colors for a tailgate, or pink and blue for a baby shower.
