Woodstock 40th Anniversary Cupcakes

by katiskupcakes

Forty years ago this weekend on August 15-18, 1969, almost half-a million young people descended on Max Yasgur’s Farm in Upstate New York to spend three days celebrating the Hippie ideals of peace, love and music. It was also the biggest gathering of people at one event in history. Woodstock took place during the height of the Vietnam War and the anti-war movement. The events of that weekend and had a major impact on the country’s culture and society.

Some of the legendary musicians that played at Woodstock included Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Santana, the Grateful Dead, The Who, Jefferson Airplane and Janis Joplin. It would be the last performances for Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin who died of drug overdoses within a year of the concert.

Kati baked these psychedelic cupcakes for a “Woodstock” party. She decorated the tie dye designed cupcakes with tie-dye swirleds of frosting and made handmade fondant cupcake toppers with messages from the 60’s era; “Peace, Love and Happiness.” Groovy cupcakes!

    Those cupcakes are wonderful. I love that Woodstock poster; so retro, so modern somehow. I was at a music festival during the summer and it couldn't have been more removed from Woodstock if it had tried. The times they are a changing…. ;O) x
