Celebrate the 4th of July with Our Firecracker Cupcakes!

We’re getting ready for the 4th of July at Brit + Co., from making red, white, and blue kite runners to rounding up 4th of July sweets and 30 ways to rock your 4th. Now we have a “poppin” sweet treat for you, Firecracker Cupcakes! Just use Poprocks or sprinkles to make your cupcakes “explode” with fun!

Ingredients:

– 1 box white cake mix

– 3 eggs

– 1 1/4 cups diet Sprite

– 1 tub frosting (white or vanilla)

Toppings/Fillings:

– Poprocks

– Sprinkles

Wilton Sugar Gems

Wilton Color Mist

Instructions:

1. Place mix, eggs, and Sprite in a large bowl. Beat on medium speed until blended.

2. Divide mix between 24 cupcake holders, filling about 3/4 of the way full.  Bake according to package directions.

3. Let the cupcakes cool and then remove a circle of cake from the top. Set aside.

4. Pour in the Poprocks or sprinkles.  We found the Poprocks get a little too moist in the cupcake and lose some of their “pop”. Sprinkles would make an excellent substitute.

5. Top with a dollop of frosting and then cover with the cake lid. Decorate with sprinkles, Poprocks, Wilton Sugar Gems, or Wilton Color Mist.
