Firecracker Cupcakes

The Fourth of July is a celebration of many things: political independence. Personal freedoms. The ability to blow up small portions of our country with fireworks. And, of course, eating! I’ve combined two of these July 4th favorites into one fun dessert, so you can now enjoy your holiday sweets with a side of sparkle. (Sorry, but you’ll have to find a different dish to appropriately commemorate our independence from King George III.) These cute Fireworks Cupcakes are a fun change from the usual Fourth of July desserts, and they’re perfect for any party or barbecue!
