Red, White & Blue cupcakes with white buttercream frosting swirled all pretty for any time celebrating!
Nothing says patriotic than red, white, and blue sweets…
Be sure to check out my post on how to frost a rose… the frosting is swirled into a rose shape for extra special decoration.
I separated a white cake mix that has been mixed with ingredients to make the cake batter, separate into three bowls, and tinted one red, one blue, and the third remains white.
Bake cupcakes according to package directions.
I made buttercream frosting and swirled it onto the tops and added these fun Flag pics.
If you can find paper flags (typically at the dollar store I find them) they look pretty cute on top of the cupcakes for extra cuteness.
When would red white and blue cupcakes be perfect to serve…
July 4th, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, all summer long too!
You can color cake batter any shade you’d like, if you use concentrated colors it gives the cake a pretty color, the cake batter should be vibrant before baking, otherwise it fades as it bakes and won’t look as nice.
I made WHITE cake mix (from a box)
colored 1/3 of the batter bright red
left 1/3 white
and the last 1/3 colored it blue
then layered the colors in the cupcake liners to bake.
The frosting is American Buttercream, perfect for summer as it holds up to the heat.
You can get the recipe for the frosting here.
Vanilla Layer Cake for those occasions where you need plenty of cake to feed a crowd!
