This is where life gets real. Living creatively, doesn’t always have to look perfect. These Buttermilk Firecracker Cupcakes great for any event!
I’m not a cake or cupcake decorator and guess what? It’s OK! This is really more about the cupcake recipe! It’s buttermilk, you guys! And it’s good! These Buttermilk Firecracker Cupcakes don’t have to be for the 4th of July, it’s all in how you want to decorate them, it’s all in the sprinkles! You can just simply frost them and call it good! They can be pretty easy to decorate like these Bubble Gum Cupcakes.
Buttermilk Firecracker Cupcakes
It doesn’t matter what they end up looking like, it’s the journey in decorating them! They’ll look great for any patriotic table! Add my simple 4th of July table centerpiece and it looks like you’ve been prepping for days.
I don’t bake much from scratch, but if I’m going to make a cake or cupcakes, then it’s going to be this Buttermilk Cupcake recipe! And since I love being creative, I thought it would be fun to make them patriotic! Who can NOT collect all those adorable cupcake liners and sprinkles? Especially patriotic sprinkles.
I LOVE these baking cups and wished I would have had the right colors, but did you know you can just place these directly on a cookie sheet, fill with your batter and bake? Cindy from Skip to My Lou told me that. She also owns Sweet Baking Supply.
My son and his friends didn’t turn them away and loved the buttermilk cupcake recipe and decorating. They ended up being perfect after all. So I encourage you to GO FOR IT! Let your creativity take you where it may, and if they aren’t as pretty as you want, then I guess you’ll have to eat it and get rid of the evidence.
If you’re looking for a fun patriotic dessert for the 4th of July holiday, then make up this recipe and then put the kids in charge of decorating!
You’ll need some red, white and blue sprinkles and cupcake liners. For the firecracker decoration, I used Twizzlers.
And to keep it simple, I used store bought frosting. Yep…… it’s OK!
If you like vanilla cake, then you’ll LOVE this recipe. It’s dense, moist and flavorful!
