We Have 9 Reasons Why Patriotic Cupcakes Need to Be on Your 4th of July Menu
Red, White, and Blue Berry Cupcakes
These cupcakes are easy as can be. Start with white cupcakes, pipe on cream cheese icing, and pile high with blueberries and raspberries.
If you're looking for a dessert that will add a pop to your 4th of July menu, you've found it. The firecracker topping is made with marshmallows, red chocolate coating, and black licorice.
Red Velvet Cupcakes
These Red Velvet Cupcakes are a classic. We love the addition of three blueberries to top it off.
Sugar Cookie Cupcakes
Top your cupcakes with homemade star cookies or opt for convenience and pick some up at your bakery—stores should be stocked with plenty of patriotic options this time of year.
Patriotic Fruit Gummies
These patriotic treats are perfect for a Fourth of July picnic or even just a warm summer's day. We used cranberry-apple juice, white sports drink, and blue sports drink – but feel free to adapt the recipe with flavors and colors you have on hand.
Fourth of July Flags
These cupcakes couldn't be simpler. Just use your favorite red velvet cake recipe and bake in cupcake liners. Frost with cream cheese icing and top it off with a festive 4th of July flag.
Red, White, and Blue Cupcake Cones
Skip the cupcake liners and opt for cones instead. A bright red cherry on top is the perfect garnish.
Red, White, and Blue Cupcake in a Jar
These individual-sized desserts are perfect for an outdoor party—especially if your dessert table is within the pool splash zone. Just don't leave them out in the heat too long.
Patriotic Hi-Hat Cupcakes
From the outside, these cupcakes look like typical chocolate-dipped hi-hats but, cut into the center and you'll find a red, white, and blue surprise.
