4th of July Cupcakes

I've always wanted to make these types of cupcakes, the kind where you use food coloring to make an array of layers in the cake. What better than on 4th of July to shake up a boring vanilla cake recipe into something red, white, and blue.

This recipe is really easy because you can basically use a box mix, an old family recipe, or the first one you can find on Google and it will come out great. When you mix up your cake recipe, you're going to want to separate the batter into 3 bowls where you will mix in red food coloring to one, blue food coloring to another and nothing to the third. You have the freedom to add as much food coloring as you'd like to reach any desired shade. 

Once you've colored your batter, you'll want to put cupcake liners into the muffin pans. Then take a tablespoon and put an equal amount of blue batter into the bottom of each liner. Next, you'll do the same step for the "white" batter, and then the red batter. Bake recipe according to the directions. 

When done baking, let them cool. I used a pink frosting and blue icing pen to write on the cupcakes with cute little sayings related to the holiday. 

See? Extremely easy! And taste nommy.

Hope you had a good 4th of July!
