Happy 4th of July!

Hey crafters!! I made these cupcakes for our annual family 4th of July party. If you are looking for a cupcakes idea these are so easy my 7 year old helped. :) To make the batter red use paste icing color (Wilton paste color can be found at Micheals, Walmart and Hobby Lobby.)
The cake is vanilla colored red and baked as usual. I used a filling tip to put white icing on the inside of the cupcakes then used a large star tip to make a swirl top.
                                             
Easy fast idea for last minute bakers like me. lol The blue icing got down in the white when I was trying to cut it for the picture. Eh, you get the point. ;)                                                   
                                           
Happy 4th of July!!
What do you do to celebrate?
Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a fun and safe holiday!

Yum! I love cupcakes and my big star tip is my favorite! People ooh and ahhh over it and it's just so dang easy. I think it's easier than trying to frost cupcakes with a spatula or knife. Plus... you get a LOT of yummy icing!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful cupcakes!
