4th of July: Patriotic Cupcakes

This recipe is for “Patriotic Red Velvet Cupcakes.”

They are a quick and easy patriotic dessert to make for your July 4th celebration!

It starts with a boxed cake mix and then a quick and easy homemade cream cheese icing. Top them off with some festive red, white, and blue sprinkles for a showstopper dessert.

We are so blessed to live in a country where we are

free, and we honor those that have sacrificed so much that we can be free. I truly hope

everyone has a safe and happy Fourth of July!
