*Yum* Cupcakes!

Please try not to lick the screen. Please. I'm out of lens wipes.

These were so much fun to make and I loved how colorful and of course how delicious they were! Thanks to Recipe Girl for the inspiration!

Look at how blue that batter is! Smurfville city, don't ya think? ;) I loved how the red, white and blue batter looked through the cupcake liner.



Festive and rich - icing in red, white and blue and my husband couldn't keep his fingers out of it! I think he shed a tear when I dumped the leftover icing down the drain, lol!







I used a star tip to pipe the icing on. I piped and piped...



...and piped and piped, 56 cupcakes! Yes. 56.





Have no fear... they were gobbled up! My nieces, nephews and in-laws really enjoyed them and I had so much fun making something festive for the day! I think I'll carry this "I want to bake something red, white and blue" tradition on each July 4th!

Have a great night! :)
