As I have mentioned before, one of my favorite things about holidays is baking holiday themed desserts and the Fourth of July is no exception! For my first Independence Day dessert I made Red, White and Blue Velvet Cupcakes.
For me, Red Velvet is definitely a true American cake, and having the right color for the occasion made this the perfect cake flavor for the occasion. Of course, I didn't just want to frost with them cream cheese frosting...more had to be done to dress up these cupcakes to celebrate our nation's birthday.
Red, White and Blue Sprinkles were a must, and I love the stars and stripes cupcake liners that I found. But my favorite part of the cupcake is the lobster on top! Being from New England nothing says summer to me more than Lobster! And I think they are the perfect finnishing touch to this dessert. Happy Fourth of July! I will have at least one more Independence Day item in the next few days.
