Patriotic Cupcakes

Patriotic cupcakes are another idea for a red, white and blue dessert. Cupcakes are convenient because guests can serve themselves quickly and easily without having to cut and and serve like a normal cake.

Cupcakes are great idea for the 4th of July because the possibilities are endless. They can be as simple as coloring each one red, white or blue, or you can decorate each one differently. Consider using red, white and blue icing along with sprinkles and add a patriotic picks, stars, or confetti to add to their design.

      OMG! These are all so beautiful looking while being so patriotic. Pick one? I think I like the layered red, white and blue the best, but I wouldn't turn down any that are served. That's for sure!

      @cupcakeideas1: You could measure it out in a single cupcake to see how many 'tablespoons one would hold' Then put 1 table spoon of blue, a table spoon of white then a spoon of red. I would take a one cupcake wrapper and use a single color to measure it so you could pour it right back in. divide it by thirds. It shouldn't mix too much as long as you did it gently.
