Cupcakes really are quite a brilliant way to harness holiday spirit and apply that sentiment to special occasions. That is why today's L.A. Weekly Flickr pool photo of the day is this display of Fourth of July cupcakes from Cupcake Contemplation's Flickr. Here, star-spangled red velvet cupcakes are covered with cream cheese frosting and blueberries.

If you have any holiday food photography, consider uploading to the L.A. Weekly Flickr pool. Because we'd love to see where the party takes your camera.
