4th of July Cupcakes!

Leave a comment

Last Thursday (on Independence day), I made 4th of July cupcakes. They were  red, white, and blue (vanilla) cupcakes with white vanilla buttercream, and fondant decorations. They turned out really nice and tasted really good too! I made extras, so I gave a few to my neighbors and my great aunt and uncle. For the decorations, I made 3 different designs. If you would like to know how I made the red, white, and blue cupcakes, look below the pics for the recipe.

Below are a few pics of the cupcakes:







Red, White, & Blue



White Cake Batter

Gel Food Coloring


1.Take your batter and divide into 3 different bowls.

2.In one bowl, mix in a few drops of red gel food coloring until you achieve your desired shade. In another bowl, mix in a few drops of blue food coloring until you get the shade of blue you want. Leave the third bowl white.

3.Make sure you line your cupcake tins with cupcake liners before spooning in the batter. Take a small spoon and spoon the blue batter into the cupcake liners about 1/4 of the way full. Then spoon the white batter another 1/4 of the way full. Finally, spoon in the red batter another 1/4 of the way full so each cupcake liner is filled ¾ of the way.

4.For a marbled affect, take a toothpick and swirl through the batter after filling the cupcake liners.

5.Bake cupcakes according to recipe’s instructions and enjoy!

*Most of the ingredients I use are organic and it makes a big difference in taste for the dessert, but you may use non-organic ingredients if you prefer
