4th of July Cupcakes

My finished chocolate 4th of July cupcakes! Yummo!
 Grandpa opens his pool on the 4th of July. We love to all go up for a BBQ and we celebrate 4th of July with fireworks too! Here are some fun 4th of July cupcakes to share with all my relatives! I just used fresh fruit and made some cute pics with flags.

Happy 4th of July! Snap, Crackle, Pop! I bet we'll be  hearing that all night?  \

Grandpa always does a BBQ for us at the 4th of July Party...Here is John and his dad, Don Moss. He is a veteran from the Air Force. Boo Yah! 

My 4th of July Decorations on my entry table...

So on Diana's Desserts website I found a simple 4th of July cupcake decorated with marshmallow whip and real cream that sounded great, and it uses the 2 fruits.  It looked very cute too so I decided to copy. Thanks Diana! Her website link is HERE.

They turned out really yummy.  I used cream cheese and marshmallow whip and cool whip because I thought the real whip cream would melt in the heat.  They were marvelicious!  Mmmmm.....I'm thinkin' of one of those babies right now! 
4th of July cupcakes from Hoosier Homemade... 

Another cute decorating idea was from Cupcake Heaven's ideas at Hoosier Homemade. Her link is HERE.
I liked the red licorice striped cupcakes with the little candy blue balls.  I have some peel apart red licorice so I will try that one too.  And maybe I can come up with some little picks in a patriotic theme.

My 4th of July cupcakes!
I love to decorate with Uncle Sam and my patriotic quilt..

My finished chocolate cupcakes! Yummo!
So my cake is chocolate... I always add about a 1/2 cup of sour cream and a small chocolate pudding mix.  It makes it a lot richer......and my icing I made with Marshmallow Creme (fluff stuff) about a cup or so, and cream cheese (about a half of a large block) and about a cup of Cool Whip. I just mess with it till it looks and tastes the consistency I want. And I gave it a little 4 drops of lime juice for a kick.  It is sooooo delicious!  You can also use it as a fruit dip. It's to die for. 

I found some little flags and stuck them on toothpicks
These 3 ingredients make THE BEST ICING EVER!  (or fruit dip)

Marisa and Megan my granddaughters rocking in the hammock....so cute! 
Happy 4th everybody!  We're off to grandpa's pool party!
