Red Velvet cupcakes are a classic treat that can easily be served at any function, big or small, fancy or casual. These are flavored with unsweetened cocoa powder, and also contain cake flour, kosher salt, an egg, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, buttermilk, baking soda, white vinegar, and of course, red food coloring (otherwise they would just be chocolate cupcakes.) In order to follow tradition, top them with cream cheese frosting. If you prefer, you can toss on a few sprinkles as well!

There’s nothing more patriotic than the classic combination of red, white and blue. These cupcakes definitely qualify, with their red, white and blue batter and matching colorful frosting. The cupcakes are made by mixing up a batch of white cupcake batter and dying portions of it red and blue with gel paste coloring. Layering the batter by color, baking these treats and then piping on red, white and blue icing once they cool results in a very patriotic treat!

Are you ready for some cupcakes that are almost too cute to eat? Just take some Duncan Hines red velvet cupcake mix, bake, and then frost with homemade vanilla buttercream. For the crowning touch, place the cupcakes someplace where they can cool down quickly, and then whip up some chocolate coating. Dip the tops of each cupcake into the coating and sprinkle on some lovely heart-shaped or red and white sprinkles. Let the coating harden and then serve with a smile!

Simple vanilla cupcakes are taken up a notch, thanks to the addition of red and blue food coloring. To make these sweet treats as colorful as they are, take a standard vanilla cupcake batter and divide it into thirds. Color one section with blue food coloring, another with red, and leave the third one white. Simply swirl the batter together into the cupcake tins and voila! Patriotic goodies that are perfect for your next holiday barbecue.
