Talented blogger and baker Bakerella came up with this deliciously festive cupcake tutorial to wish you all a happy 4th of July. The tutorial teaches you how to decorate these memorial ruffled cupcakes inspired by the American flag.
Making these patriotic 4th of July cupcakes is surprisingly easy and fun. Begin by whipping up your favorite cupcake batter. In this tutorial, Bakerella opted for a chocolate cupcake base but you can use vanilla, red velvet or any other sweet flavor. Then mix up a blue, red and white buttercream frosting and pipe the icing into several clear bags. Attach a petal tip to get that perfect ruffle look while you pipe. Then simply layer the icings to create a red, white and blue to replicate the look of the iconic American flag.
