Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Patriotic Desserts-Red, White, Blue Cupcakes

It’s time to party for Inauguration Day – January 20.

Even if you have nothing planned, surprise your family with a patriotic dessert. Or invite some friends over for dessert and champagne.

The obvious choice is patriotic cupcakes because of portion control. Here are some ideas:

EASY–Make white cupcakes with cake mix and frost with white frosting. Garnish with red and blue sprinkles.

Prepare a white cake mix in a bundt cake pan. Divide the batter into thirds. Make the botton layer blue, the middle layer red, and the top layer white. Serve with a mixture of strawberries and blueberries and top with a dollop of whipped cream.

Make a layer cake with a white cake mix. Divide the batter in half. Use red food coloring for one half and blue food coloring for the other half. Frost with white frosting and red and blue sprinkles.

If all else fails, there’s nothing more American than apple pie.

Here’s clever red, white, and blue cupcakes.
