Red, White and Blue Cupcakes
Red, White and Blue Cupcakes – A delicious and simple recipe perfect for July 4th, or for whenever you’re feeling Patriotic!
With July 4th nearing, I knew I wanted to create something special. It had to be patriotic, and definitely delicious. Since barbecue is already on the menu, of course, I figured I might as well save some time by preparing dessert in advance, this way I can enjoy more time with family and friends. These Red, White and Blue cupcakes are the perfect make-ahead celebration dessert!
Cupcakes are perfect for these occasions. Yes, it means I have to turn on the oven while the weather is warm, but I can knock out a whole tray of desserts in no time.
I particularly like this recipe because it only makes a dozen. You can easily double the recipe if you want more. I also make the buttercream frosting with a mix of unsalted and salted butter; believe me when I say it’s good! When done mixing, I divided the frosting into separate bowls to dye it red and blue, reserving just enough white frosting to complete my patriotic color scheme.
