Planning a 4th of July picnic? Cupcakes are a great dessert option for barbecues and get-togethers to celebrate Independence Day. To help you create some patriotic treats, we put together this collection of six great 4th of July cupcake ideas.
1. Fun Toppers
Eye-catching 4th of July cupcakes don’t have to feature fancy icing. Try topping them with flags and patriotic streamers!
2. Mini Flags
Decorate white icing with red stripes and blue stars to make adorable mini flags!
3. Cupcake Flag Cake
Ice your cupcakes in white, red and blue with white dots and arrange them in the shape of a cake.
4. Berry Beautiful
Raspberries and blueberries are particularly delicious this time of year and perfectly fit a red white and blue theme. Here, a raspberry is paired with a white chocolate star and nestled on a dollop of blue icing.
5. Star Power
If you’re handy with fondant, you can take a cue from these beautiful treats served at a 4th of July function at the U.S. Consulate in Barcelona, Spain. Just create fondant stars in red, blue and white in different sizes, stack them and serve. These red, white and blue cupcake wrappers put the perfect finishing touch on the design.
6. Colorful Cake
These beautiful mini cupcakes also feature multicolored fondant stars, but are extra special because they featured red and blue velvet cupcakes!
