Fun & Festive Cupcakes for the Fourth

Created May 22, 2019
Cute and crowd-friendly, cupcakes are the perfect dessert on the Fourth of July. Whether you want to go all out with a flag-shaped cupcake cake or keep it simple with strawberries standing in for frosting, these recipes are a perfect salute to summer’s biggest celebration.

Now that you’ve got your recipe or recipes, here are a couple of quick tips to keep in mind when making cupcakes.

  • Never fill cupcakes more than ⅔ full with batter.
  • Use shiny pans that reflect heat for tender, light cakes.
  • To determine doneness use the toothpick test, i.e. when a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, cupcakes are done.
  • Cool cupcakes completely before frosting.

For a quick fix, try one of Betty’s delicious Rich & Creamy Frostings or make your own with one of our kitchen-tested frosting recipes.
