Fun and Easy 4th of July DIY Cupcakes

7:30 PM

Martha.  Betty.  I envy them both.  I barely bake, and when I do, I'm stuck trying to come up with something unique.  I really wanted to make special cupcakes for the 4th of July this year, but I have no skills!

Thankfully, my husband picked up some baking staples with a simple red, white, and blue theme.  We stocked up on yellow cake mix, sprinkles (in blue, and red/white peppermint.)  I got the creamy frosting that was extra fluffy, and some new Wilton baking cups, too!

They are really nothing special, but I got compliments on how festive they were.  (I tried adding some blue sprinkles into the batter, but with our super yellow farm eggs, it made them a tad green!)  You could get very fancy with frosting tips and food coloring, but these work just as well with a few sprinkles here and there.

Do you have any special 4th of July recipes that help you celebrate?  What are your favorite DIY ideas for the holiday kitchen?
