  • 2 cans vanilla frosting
  • Red and Blue Food Coloring
  • Sprinkles for stars
  • Assorted Dippers


  • Line serving plate with parchment paper for easy cleanup.
  • Place about half of one can of frosting in a medium size bowl and color it blue.
  • Divide the remaining frosting into two parts. Dye one red and leave the other white.
  • Place each frosting in a piping bag and cut off the end (no tip needed).
  • Create the blue section of the flag in the tip left corner (height is about half the size of the flag and just under half the width).
  • Start with the red frosting and pipe stripes, starting with red at the top. There are 4 red stripes touching the blue section, then 3 additional red stripes, with the last one being the bottom of the flag.
  • Fill in with the white frosting.
  • Place white pearl sprinkles or similar sprinkle for the stars.
  • Arrange dippers around the edge of the buttercream flag.
  • Serve immediately.
