The Cupcake Project: 4th of July Cupcakes Easy Homemade Cupcakes Recipe
Week 5 of The Cupcake Project bring us these adorable 4th of July Cupcakes! Vanilla cupcakes with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting and the juiciest berries fresh picked and ready for Summer eating. If you’ve been following along here for the last month, you’ve watched me baking my way through the amazeballs cookbook, Your Cup of Cake. 1 new homemade cupcake recipe a week. It’s written by Lizzy Early. Have you all gone to check it out yet?? Oh Mylanta!! Best $12 I ever spent at Sam’s Club! These super easy 4th of July Cupcakes are easy peasy too. Probably the easiest ones I’ve made so far. I’ve said it a million times, I am so NOT a cupcake decorator. I just love making great homemade cupcakes! I probably use my piping bags and fancy tips totally wrong. Please, don’t tell the fine folks at Wilton, I’ve dropped some serious cash over there and they can’t come confiscate my stash! But, these 4th of July Cupcakes have that gorgeous, juicy fruit to cover any mistakes! You too can absolutely whip these homemade cupcakes up in no time and have everyone ‘Ohhhhh-ing & Ahhhhh-ing’. Way better than Aunt Mildred’s Ambrosia, right? Ethan is a huge fruit lover, so he was way more than happy with all the left-over fruit too. Bonus! So, are ya ready? Let’s get baking! Oh! At the bottom of this recipe for the 4th of July Cupcakes are links to all the other homemade cupcakes I’ve made for The Cupcake Project. Don’t forget to check those out!
