Awesomely simple patriotic cupcakes!

My mom asked me to bring some cupcakes for our family 4th cookout, and when I make cupcakes I like to go all out, so I browsed the baking isle and managed to throw this together. Now I'm trying to resist eating them until the BBQ tomorrow :/

Recipe

  1. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 1 1

    Follow directions on the cake mix to prepare your batter, and add blue food coloring until you get the shade you want. Then pour into a muffin pan and bake as directed.

  2. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 2 2

    While your cupcakes are baking, put frosting into a bowl and mix in red food coloring.

  3. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 3 3

    While you're at it, mix a little bit of blue food coloring with some sugar. I made too much here.

  4. 4

    Make your pudding mix.

  5. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 5 5

    Once your cupcakes are done and cooled, use a spoon and carefully cut/spoon out the center of the cupcakes.

  6. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 6 6

    Spoon a bit of pudding into each cupcake

  7. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 7 7

    Add frosting. I personally put mine in a ziplock baggie and cut the corner and squirted it on.




  8. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 8 8

    Sprinkle some of your colored sugar on.

  9. 9

    Melt your white chocolate chips. I did mine in a pan on a stove, I recommend adding a little veggie oil to keep it from burning.

  10. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 10 10

    For this style of cupcake, drizzle the white chocolate over the cupcakes, then take a strawberry and dip it in the white chocolate, then in the blue sugar.

  11. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 11 11

    For these, I sliced the strawberries (I like it because the inside of the strawberry looks like an exploding firework), put a little blob of white chocolate on it, and sprinkle some of the colored sugar over it. I also put a couple white chocolate chips around the strawberry slice.

  12. How to decorate a novelty cake. Patriotic Cupcakes - Step 12 12

    The end result should be something like this!
