Fourth of July Cupcakes

Fourth of July Cupcakes

A dessert doesn’t have to be red, white and blue to be appropriate for a 4th of July celebration, but it certainly doesn’t hurt, especially when topped with berries and cream cheese frosting.

If you’re still wondering what to make for tomorrow’s festivities, these easy cupcakes will certainly do the trick. A basic vanilla recipe does the trick with a few drops of food coloring and some blueberries and / or strawberries. Festive and healthy? Yes, please!

Not only are these little goodies the perfect size for snacking, they’re also red, white and blue in American tradition and topped with an extra oomph of vanilla. They’ll be the stars of the show!

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes

Cupcakes, in an ice cream cone? It all started with these tiny ice cream waffle cones.

Though they were fiddly and messy to make, the final result was so cute! The surprise load of popping candy in the centre was definitely a crowd pleaser and much giggling ensued.

And though I love my cupcakes, I definitely need to get my hands on more of these little cones so I can experiment with different desserts 🙂

Really, really good red velvet cupcakes can be totally elusive, right? Some are dry, some are TOO red. And what’s the story behind red velvet cake (and cupcakes) anyway?

These are everything I was hoping for – moist, fluffy, a tiny bit chocolatey, and a perfect vehicle for a heaping pile of cream cheese frosting!
