Here’s a fun July 4th dessert that kids can help make! These patriotic flag cupcakes will look awesome at your family’s fourth of July cookout, and they taste delicious too.
We had a large package of blueberries to use up, and I decided to use this adorable July 4th snack idea from The Educator’s Spin On It and make cupcakes instead.
I used a box cake mix (white) and white icing out of a tub. Can’t get much simpler than that! Whenever I use icing out of a tub, I always hear Marie Barone saying something patronizing over my shoulder… “Oh, cookie dough from a log! Well, it’s almost like baking!” (from Everybody Loves Raymond).
Pat the berries dry with a paper towel before putting them on the cupcakes. Wet blueberries will slide off the icing!
Also, I would recommend waiting to put on the fruit until just before serving. The strawberries will create juice that will run down the icing!
Gresham helped me make these. He always enjoys doing special things for holidays! And then the boys and Janie and the neighbor kids promptly ate 10 of them.
Happy Fourth of July!
