Recipe: Red White and Blue Cupcakes

This is so simple I’m almost embarrassed to post it. But they’re fun and yummy and everyone needs a little patriotic spirit once in awhile. Enjoy!

Fourth of July Cupcakes


One boxed white cake mix + the eggs and oil to prepare it
Red food coloring
Blue food coloring
One tub white frosting
Festive sprinkles


Prepare batter as directed on package, being sure to use egg whites rather than whole eggs (most boxed white cake mixes give you the option.) Divide the prepared batter into three small bowls. Add red food coloring to one bowl, blue food coloring to another, and don’t add anything to the third. Spoon a layer of each color into lined cupcake tins. Bake according to package directions. Cool, frost and decorate!


  • The hardest part of this recipe was finding white cupcake papers. I ended up using the liners found between foil cupcake holders. I think the manufacturer expects you to throw them away. But, they are white and work perfectly!
  • Mix and match colors for other holidays!

Many thanks to my photographer!
