Fourth of July Cupcakes

Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone had as nice a day as I did. It was great having my daughter and her family here to visit for the holiday. They aren't leaving for a week. Looking forward to the upcoming week off to visit with them. We had a barbecue and went and watched the city's fireworks.

I decided to make the the Fourth of July Cupcakes from A Recipe a Day by Nancy. I thought my two grandkids would get a kick out of them...I think the adults did too!

This recipe should make like 18 cupcakes but I had my grandkids helping so I made 13!

White cake mix and the ingredients to make it
blue food coloring
red food coloring
white frosting


Mix the cake mix and the ingredients to make it. Divide the batter evenly into three bowls. In one bowl add blue food coloring to desired shade. Repeat with the red food color. Leave one bowl as it.

Line 18 muffin tins with liners. Put about 2T of red batter on bottom; next 2 T of white on top of red; third 2T on top. Do not swirl.

Bake as directed on cake mix box. Let cupcakes cool. Frost with the white frosting and add red, white and blue sprinkles.
