I looked online and found lots of cute decorated cupcakes with the patriotic red, white and blue theme going. I really wanted to find some I could use with blueberries and strawberries because I bought a HUGE package at Costco and I need to use them up! I don't know why I bought tons of this stuff!
So on Diana's Desserts website I found a simple 4th of July cupcake decorated with marshmallow whip and real cream that sounded great, and it uses the 2 fruits. It looked very cute too so I decided to copy. Thanks Diana! Her website link is HERE.
They turned out really yummy. I used cream cheese and marshmallow whip and cool whip because I thought the real whip cream would melt in the heat. They were marvelicious! Mmmmm.....I'm munchin' on one of those babies right now!

Another cute decorating idea was from Cupcake Heaven's ideas at Hoosier Homemade. Her link is HERE.
I liked the red licorice striped cupcakes with the little candy blue balls. I have some peel apart red licorice so I will try that one too. And the red, white and blue candy sprinkles? You can never have too many sprinkles! And maybe I've got some flags too....so here's what mine look like!
|My finished chocolate cupcakes! Yummo!|
|We had to stop and get a famous Raspberry SHAKE! Yummy! And look, I'm wearing red white and blue! |
Such a patriotic lady, right?

So.......Happy 4th of July everybody! And God Bless the U.S.A.
