With 3 birthdays in our family throughout the month of June… The 4th of July always sneeks up on me! I can’t believe we are just days away from beautiful displays of fireworks and sparkler fun! To celebrate, I came up with these fabulous cupcakes that are filled with “exploding” pop rocks and topped with candy sparklers! They make such a pretty display for a patriotic event!
Star Spangled Cupcakes with Candy Sparklers and Pop Rocks
- 12 cupcakes baked
- 12 Twizzlers pull n peel red white and blue colors
- 12 lollipop sticks
- sprinkles and other candy decorations
- 4 packages of pop rocks
- light blue buttercream icing
- cut a hole in the top of the cupcakes and fill with pop rocks. Put the top back on the cupcakes and ice with light blue icing. Sprinkle with sprinkles and top with Twizzlers candy sparklers (SEE VIDEO).
I put together a video to make the tutorial a little easier to understand:
These are the cutest 4th of July Cupcakes!!!! I love how they turned out and they look great alongside some sparkler candles too! What are you making for the 4th of July?
