Patriotic Cupcakes

Can we all just agree that cupcakes are a pretty great dessert? Not only are they a dessert that you don’t need a plate for but they’re also a dessert that you’re given the green light to walk around and eat, too!

How awesome is that? And if the crumbs start to fall, just head out the door and enjoy them outside instead. A pretty simple solution to enjoy every single bite.

With Independence Day around the corner, having a festive dessert is just what you need. Luckily these cupcakes are simple and easy to make and are quite beautiful as well.

While most times people are staring at the fireworks, there’s a good chance that they’ll be looking at your cupcakes the whole time instead! Bake them in the oven and pile on that frosting because these are going to go fast when they’re cooled down and ready to eat!
