Use ice cream waffle cone and spread green icing on cone (this will allow a little more goof proof covering – if you are an expert icer then skip that step) pipe green icing in small stars until covered and set aside until you have all done.  Spread liberal amount of white icing on top of cupcake and stick the tree down into icing to make it stay in place. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve at party.

Memorial Day/4th Of July Star Banner

Fly the nation’s colors on the Fourth with this jaunty string of stars. For each ornament, cut a four-pointed star from solid-color card stock and two from patterned origami paper. Use a glue stick to sandwich the card-stock star between the decorative ones, right sides facing out; stagger the tips to create an eight-pointed star. Machine-stitch through one axis of a big red star; sew 4 inches beyond its tip, or lift foot and pull out 4 inches of thread, then pick up again at the tip of a blue star. Repeat, alternating between colors.
