I made a version of this cupcake for Easter - with spring colors, and I knew that it would be fun to make with other colors for different holidays. So how could I NOT make red, white and blue cupcakes to celebrate the Fourth of July? I'd be crazy not to, so I made them for a few friends and my co-workers to enjoy right before the actual holiday.
They are super easy to make, so take a look at how I made the fun little treats!
White Cake Mix
Strawberry Jell-O Mix
Berry Blue Jell-O Mix
Cream Cheese Frosting
Pour the cake mix into mixing bowl.
Add the water...
Then the oil...
And now the eggs!
Mix it alllll up!
Set out three bowls.
One for RED, one for WHITE, and one for BLUE!
Put the Strawberry Jell-O mix in one bowl
and the Berry Blue Jell-O mix in another.
Fill all the bowls up with an equal amount of cake mix.
And mix the ones with Jell-O!
This is what it will look like.
I know - not crazy appetizing,
but it tastes good...I promise!!
Put Cupcake Liners in the pan.
Spoon red mix into the cups...
Then cover it with white mix...
And finish it up with a layer of blue!
Bake according to the box directions.
Here they are after baking!
Leave them alone until completely cool.
Put your frosting into a piping bag...
And frost the cupcakes!!!!
Then take them to work for your co-workers to enjoy!
Or eat them all yourself.
Do what you want, I won't judge! :)
