We made it through yet another holiday, and next on the list is one of my personal favorites. The 4th of July is such an awesome holiday, and I always look forward to cooking and baking for the occasion. I love the colors-red, white, and blue! It doesn’t get much better than that. I have already been making some fun 4th of July recipes, and first on my list is some yummy red, white and blue cupcakes. Well I guess you could call some of them Red White and Blue Velvet Peeping Cupcakes! Not everyone in my family enjoys cream cheese frosting, me being one of them. So we had a little fun, used white and red sprinkles, and had our peeps on the side.
I loved that I was able to add new Mini Peeps to cupcakes, and most importantly the kids LOVED them! Sprinkles, fun colors, and cute little Mini Peeps. It truly doesn’t get better than that, lol.
If you are looking for a yummy recipe, and something fun to do with your kids you cannot go wrong with this Red, White, And Blue Velvet Cupcakes with Mini Peeps 4th of July recipe.
We had a blast making the cupcakes, of course the kids were messy, and my youngest daughter had to lick the bowl so we barely got all the blue cupcake batter out of her hair lol. I have several other 4th of July Recipes coming that I cannot wait to share. I have really had a whole lot of fun baking new things and stepping outside of my comfort zone with my camera.
The Red, White, And Blue Velvet Cupcakes turned out GREAT. They were super moist, and tasty. However, I do have one suggestion – be sure you have the right color blue. I have made red velvet cake several times, and always seem to do great with the coloring, but the blue I made it too light. I know, without a doubt I should have added more. So if you decided to try this recipe, be sure you focus on the correct color blue. Sure light blue works, but I was looking for a darker blue. It’s a learning process, and you have to admit the Mini Peeps are awesome.
