I nanny for a couple who own a French restaurant. For Bastille Day (14th July) they commissioned me to make 50 cupcakes decorated in red, white and blue. They were apparently a big hit, and this is what they looked like:

*They were lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Decorated with a star tip nozzle (piped badly) and fondant flowers. I made a rose for each one (alternating red and blue) as well as a blossom-type flower in the opposite colour, then piped a little bit of icing into the centre of those. Finally, I shook edible glitter over each one. Voila!
