A patriotic cupcake filled with blue and red icing and sprinkles

Cupcakes have a long standing tradition in our household.

We officially renamed them cup-cups after my father, who had perhaps imbibed more alcohol than he should have, kept trying to offer me a plate full of “delicious cup-cups” at his 59th birthday party.

In addition, my beautiful daughter used to bake a lot when she was still at home, and cupcakes were her favorite to make. She honed some excellent icing skills over the years.

The appeal of cup-cups from the baking side of things is that you can focus on a vanilla flavor and go all out with the icing or get inventive with flavors. They’re perfect to make if you have little helpers too.

The appeal from the eating side is that they’re bite-sized morsels of goodness that are easy to hold and eat, unlike many other desserts you’ll find at gatherings.

So, whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or just enjoying the day with family and friends, consider a recipe from this collection of easy-to-make cupcakes make the perfect addition to your Fourth of July celebration. With red, white, and blue colors and festive decorations, these cupcakes are sure to bring some patriotic flair to your dessert table.
