Today I’m sharing easy Fourth of July cupcakes that you can whip up in an hour. Seriously, just an hour. Oh, hey there… it’s Mel from So Festive! I’m all about simple ways to celebrate, and this recipe for Fourth of July cupcakes fits the bill perfectly. They would be a great choice to serve at a neighborhood party, bring to a patriotic holiday BBQ, or any sort of family and friends event.
Easy Fourth of July Cupcakes
First, make your favorite kind of cupcakes. It really doesn’t matter the flavor, as long as they’re frosted in white. You could do strawberry cupcakes, coconut lemon cupcakes, Oreo cupcakes, you name it! Then frost them with your favorite frosting. You can find a delicious homemade frosting recipe here, just omitting the cocoa.
Once the cupcakes have frosting on them, you are ready to decorate the flag! I used mini Twizzlers and star gummy candies I found at Winco this year. I sure do love that Winco store! Speaking of stores, Amazon has some super cute patriotic party items…

And, because they just look comfy!
Okay, back to the Fourth of July cupcakes… it’s time to decorate. And, there’s no need to feel decoration-intimidation. This is as easy as it gets. You can make one giant flag, or smaller flags to give away.
Ta-da! I told you it was easy. And, look how cute! Make these for your Fourth of July parties, for sure.
