Summer brings may opportunities for get-togethers, cookouts, picnics, backyard BBQs, and pot-lucks with celebrations of holidays, birthday parties, family reunions, and the list goes on. My family has a 4th of July/family reunion every year. Each family brings a side dish or dessert to share along with lots of burgers and hot dogs from the grill. There are games for the kids, corn hole, swimming, beer, lots of visiting with family, and lots of food. At the end of the night we light our own fireworks. A fun all-American celebration.

PRINTABLE RECIPE HERE

Ingredients for Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes

2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 tsp Clabber Girl baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil 
1/2 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup water
white frosting (any kind you like, I used Whipped Vanilla)
red and blue food coloring gel
sprinkles and flag cupcake liners ( I used this fun kit)

Directions for Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prepare cupcake pan with liners.  
2. Add the flour, sugar, Clabber Girl baking powder, and salt to a large mixing bowl or your stand mixer and mix together. Set aside. 
3. In another mixing bowl, add the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and egg whites and mix together. 
4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in the large mixing bowl and combine together until well mixed. Add the water to the batter and mix together on low speed until it is all well combined. 
5. Divide the batter into equal amounts into 3 separate bowls. 
6. Use the red and blue food coloring gel and color 2 of the bowls of batter, to have a red, white, and a blue batter. I used about 2 butter knife tips of food coloring, you can add more to or less for desired color. 
7. Spoon a little of each batter into your cupcake liners, filling about 1/2 full. 
8. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. 
9. Let the cupcakes cool for a few minutes, then remove them to a cooling rack to finish cooling. 
10. For the frosting, simply use a premade white frosting. Add the frosting to a piping bag. 
11. When the cupcakes are completely cool, pipe the frosting on top of the cupcakes. I used the round piping tip Wilton #12
12. Add sprinkles and other holiday decorations to cupcakes.

  4. Oh my god! Such a beautiful theme. The cupcakes look amazing. It just made my mouth watery. I have saved this post and I am going to share it with my best friend. She is a baker and I know she can make anything that is told. She even took part in the fair that took place in one of the event venues Chicago last month.
