fourth of july cupcakes

These are the cupcakes that I baked for the Fourth of July last year.  We were invited to my husband's coworker's house for a party, and I wanted to bring cupcakes.  I decided on making chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  And to make them red white and blue, I decorated them with red and blue stars.

I packed them up in my handy-dandy Cupcake Courier (my favorite way to transport cupcakes, and even cakes!), and off we went!

I haven't decided yet what I'll be making this year - possibly a fruit tart with pastry cream, decorated with blueberries and raspberries?  Or maybe macarons?  Stay tuned!


  1. These look great, not over done with the icing. Sometimes in an attempt to get all three colors people go to excess. I look forward to see what you make this year!

  2. So cute, I love those sprinkles!! Have a great 4th.

  3. Such lovely cupcakes! They look festive and delicious :) Buzzed
