11 Fourth of July Cupcakes That Are Red, White, Blue, And Delicious


What do you think of when you hear the words “Fourth of July”? A barbecue and fireworks, probably. And with so many food options — including delicious, juicy burgers, sweet and creamy sheet cakes, and savory potato salads — cupcakes might have totally slipped your mind. But we’re here to make the case for Fourth of July cupcakes as the ideal Independence Day treat, and here’s why.

Casual, grab-and-go desserts are ideal for summer cookouts. Who has time to sit there with a fork and knife and actually cut up a dessert? We want our sweets, and we want them now! There are games to play, loved ones to chat with, and fireworks to watch. Enter the cupcake — a delightful handheld dessert that won’t chain you to the table. Plus, there’s nothing more patriotically pleasing than a tray full of red, white, and blue cupcakes, right? My country, ’tis of thee, sweet land of red velvet cupcakes!
