Salute the (cupcake) flag


Courtesy of Baked by Melissa

This cupcake flag from New York-based Baked by Melissa would make a perfect patriotic dessert for a bride who is marrying over the Fourth of July weekend. The flag, which is made out of miniature red, white and blue vanilla-flavored cupcakes, comes in three sizes (starting at $182 for a 260-cupcake flag). Baked by Melissa currently only delivers within New York City, but brides across the country can visit to see more photos of the flag and to get dessert ideas and inspiration. —Kathryn Papanek
