Chocolate Fireworks Cakes!

When life is crazy busy and you want a cute sweet to serve for your 4th of July get-together, I've got your back! These Suzy Q's are the perfect vehicle for our sparkly chocolate fireworks!

My hubby and I are heading out of town and will return just in time for our family's Independence Day cook-out. I will be whipping up a few of these as they are seriously the easiest and quickest thing I've ever made!

I used red and blue candy melts, red and blue sprinkles, Wilton edible glitter stars, pre-made and pre-filled bag cream cheese frosting with star tip.
And don't forget these adorable and sweet Suzy Q's cakes.
I filled disposable decorator bags with candy melts and melted on defrost setting in microwave in 30 second intervals. Knead bag after each nuking session. Mine took about 1 1/2 minutes.
Snip off just the tip end of each bag and pipe your design onto parchment paper.
I'm feeling patriotic!
Pipe the second color/layer right on top of the other and don't worry about letting the first layer dry first. Immediately sprinkle on the silver stars and let dry. It takes just a few minutes to set.
Now you can decorate the cake tops any way you want with the frosting and top with sprinkles.

Just gently peel/lift your candy fireworks from the parchment paper and place on top of your decorated cakes. 
 These turned out so cute and were so much fun to make!

Hope you all have a blessed 4th of July!
Thanks for stopping by!
'til we sweet again, KarenšŸ§”
