4th of July Cupcakes...

With a twist! A tye-dye twist, that is. I created some mini cupcakes for the fourth and they are certainly different from any regular cupcake! You can tell when you bite into them! :)

4th of July Tye-Dye Cupcakes


*Vanilla cake mix
*Vanilla frosting
*Mini cupcake holders
*Red dye
*Blue dye
*4th of July sprinkles


1. Follow instructions on Cake mix box for cupcakes. But once the batter is in the cupcake holders, get your red and blue dye. Squirt some dye into the middle of each cupcake (before it's baked!)
2. Put into the oven and bake for 10 minutes if you are baking mini cupcakes. But if you are making regular sized cupcakes, follow directions on the box.
3. Once you've taken the cupcakes out of the oven, let them cool.

4. After they've cooled a while, take them out of the pan and frost them with white frosting.

5. Now, tye-dye them using red and blue frostings. (BTW... to make red and blue frostings, take two seperate little bowls and scoop white frosting into each one. Then, use your red dye to color one bowl of frosting and blue dye for the other.) To tye-dye the cupcakes, just spread around some of the colored frostings!
6. Use the 4th of July red, white, and blue sprinkles to finish them off! :) Tada!.... :)
And the batter made a LOT of these cute little cupcakes as you can see.... :)

Baked with Love ♥
