New month, new series and for the month of June Dana and I will be bringing you our 4th of July series!! I of course love going all out with the red, white, blue for the 4th and I will be sharing some amazing recipes you can create for your 4th of July celebrations.
This week I am bringing you my Fireworks Cupcakes! These cupcakes are so fun, delicious and adorable! They are also easy to make but look super impressive.
The red, white and blue cupcakes make a perfectly delicious dessert but the wow factor is in the candy fireworks that explode in your mouth (thanks to poprocks) and bring a super fun element to these tasty cupcakes.
You just start with a simple white cake mix from scratch or a box, whatever floats your boat, separating the batter into 3 equal parts. You just dye one batter portion red, one blue and leave the other white.
Then you just pop a little of each color into your super cute cupcake liners and give em a little swirl.
Bake and cool. Then for the frosting, you do the same thing, separate the frosting into 3 portions, dying one blue, one red and leave one white. I carefully put some blue frosting on one side of my bag, red on the other and white in the middle and then pipe away.
For the fireworks, I melt white, blue and red candy melts. Place each color in a ziploc bag and cut off a tiny bit of the corner. Using all 3 colors I pipe a firework design and quickly sprinkle them with red and blue pop rocks before they dry.
Once dry I place them carefully on the top of the cupcakes and viola the most amazing 4th of July cupcakes that explode like fireworks in your mouth. Kids will love them, adults will love and they are a great way to end your 4th of July party with a bang.
