This Fourth of July you'll be reppin' the red, white, and blue from your head to your feet AND the things you eat! Follow along to learn how to make these patriotic cupcakes!
What We Used:
1 package Popcicle Sticks
1 package cupcake wrappers
Gel Food Coloring
3 Piping Bags
Piping Tip #6B
**To core use the back end of any regular piping tip to core cupcake.
Poke your cupcake and push it all the way down into your cupcake. This will leave the perfect space to fill your cupcakes with confetti**
1 package of edible red, white and blue confetti
Red Velvet and Vanilla Cupcakes (can bake or purchase)
*Optional Glitter, sprinkles or other edible adormentments to add to the tops after you finish frosting.
Bake and Cool Cupcakes
Place cupcakes into refrigerater for at least 30 minutes
Make and dye buttercream frosting (1 batch red, 1 batch white, 1 batch blue)
Load buttercream into piping bags
Remove cupcakes from refrigerater.
Using your coring tool press all the way down into the center of the cupcake and remove. Pour edible confetti into the hole in the cupcake.
Repeat on all cupcakes.
Starting with the blue frosting and using piping tip #6B start in the center of the cupcake using medium pressure and squeeze enough to cover top of cupcake.
Repeat for all cupcakes with the blue icing.
White icing is next. Using your piping bag and tip #6B We will apply slightly lighter pressure in the center of the blue until it spreads to match the blue. We are creating a stacked effect.
Repeat for all cupcakes.
Final Icing is red. Using your piping bag and tip #6B. Use light pressure to apply the red stacked directly on top of your white.
Once finished with all cupcakes return to the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes.
Glue gun satin bows to top of popsicle sticks and insert popcicle sticks into center of cupcakes.
Serve and Enjoy!
