Easy Last-Minute Red, White, & Blue Cupcakes
If you need an easy, last-minute Fourth of July dessert; all you need is boxed cake mix and some fresh berries to create a red, white, and blue treat. If you want to start with homemade white cupcakes, use this recipe here. Then simply top with vanilla icing a fresh berries.
People often ask me how I get the cupcake icing on so smoothly. I don't use any fancy pastry bags or decorating tips. I simply put the icing into a plastic sandwitch bag and cut a 1/2 inch opening in one of the corners. It's easy and takes no time at all to swirl on the frosting.
Add an extra festive touch by topping each cupcake with mini flags from the craft or dollar store.
