Let's get started to get your festive looking cupcakes!

Make your favorite cake mix for your cupcakes or use scratch recipe below

Red and blue colored sugar (you can also add some regular white sugar on the center for more glitter effect, I omitted for less sweetness.)

Spread the cooked cooled cupcakes with vanilla icing. Sprinkle one side with blue, leave the white in the middle and red at the end.
