When you have a table full of festive cupcakes at your 4th of July celebration, you’re sure to be in sweet land of the free. Is it even a real party without cupcakes, after all? The bite-sized dessert is much easier to serve than the cake and can be made in many different flavors with all kinds of fun and patriotic toppings.
So collect your favorite sprinkles, red, white and blue sprinkles, and lots of red and blue fruits to top all your cupcakes this 4th of July. Taking inspiration from our flag cake, we love decorating our vanilla cupcakes with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries to mimic the iconic stars and stripes.
America is a real melting pot, and we think these cupcakes reflect so many unique classic flavors from across the country. From dole whip cupcakes and cannoli cupcakes, to churro cupcakes and carrot cake cupcakes, we think each of these recipes will make a splash for your guests.
We might have to revolt if there aren’t Boston Cream Cupcakes, tbh. Or red velvet cupcakes. Or cheesecake-stuffed cupcakes (yes, you read that right). Alright, we’ve got plenty of cupcake recipes to be proud of this holiday. And please don’t think about not making our 4th of July s’mores dip.
Looking for more holiday fun? Try the rest of our 4th of July dessert ideas, especially our best patriotic cakes. Our 4th of July Baked Brie is also a real spectacle that we think might even outshine your fireworks.
