Since it’s Cupcake Tuesday and I’m having a week long Fourth of July Celebration, I couldn’t let the day go by without some very special cupcakes.
I started with a plain white cake mix.
Divided the batter into 3 bowls. I just estimated it, although I had more white left over than red or blue. I think next time I will measure it into cups.
I tinted the batter red and blue with food coloring.
I found these cute cupcake liners at Walmart, they are made by Wilton.
I used a large tablespoon and started with the blue batter, then added white and finally red. Again, next time, I think I will use a smaller spoon or put a smaller amount of batter in. I ended up overflowing them a little, but when they baked up, they looked okay.
Then I frosted them with White Buttercream Frosting
But, I couldn’t just leave them plain. I added blue M&M’s and licorice to form an American Flag.
And here is the how special batter turned out
How fun are these?
And I think the presentation with my flags turned out cute too!
Now I just need a big white platter for them. I’ll have to keep my eye open at Goodwill for one.
