Explosion of Flavor
So what better way to celebrate July 4th than by making "cutsie" red, white, & blue cuppyyycakesss!
So of course, being the obsessed cupcake baker I'am, I search on Pinterest and Wahh Lahh, I found the cutest recipe for Patriotic Cupcakes.
Here's the recipe:
4th of July Cupcakes
After preparing all the the batter, adding colors, & baking, I open the oven to find 11 out of my 12 cupcakes splattered throughout my oven! The cupcakes EXPLODED! You read it right, exploded! The inside of my oven looked as if America's colors had thrown up in it. (Okay, but seriously, there was patriotic batter covering every inch of my oven) But I did manage to rescue one cupcake, but rest assure, it's as ugly as sin.
Even though my cupcakes are ugly, I promise you this recipe does work ( I have made these cupcakes before!) They taste delicious & usually turn out pretty cool. Unfortunately, the kitchen got the best of me, because I have no idea where I went wrong..
Anyway, thought I'd share my not so "cutsie" cupcakes with y'all. What are your plans??
Happy July 4th! & thank you to all that have fought for our freedom, past & present!
And a special thanks to my two wonderful brothers! Thank you for everything you have done.
