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.
