4th of July Cupcakes are not only easy to make but are always a hit at those summer BBQ’s. These cupcakes are made in a jar which really adds a festive element to them.
As summer approaches, I can’t help but get excited for all those summer parties AND the 4th of July. It’s seriously one of my favorite holidays.
The 4th of July reminds me of family and friends. It’s a time to get together, eat delicious food, let the kids play, enjoy some time in the pool and of course celebrate the freedom of our amazing country.
Easy 4th of July Cupcakes
To make these cupcakes, you’ll need to have the following:

While this recipe is for the cupcakes in a jar, you can make them as a traditional cupcake.
I like making them in a jar as it really adds another element and they look so pretty!
