Patriotic Cupcakes

Red White and Blue just for you.  Easy to whip up cupcakes for the 4th of July.

 Desserts don’t always mean spending hours in the kitchen. Every now and then, simplicity means more time spent with friends and family. Grab a box cake, pour into cute liners, top with good ole homemade frosting and you’re good to go! 

Have a wonderful 4th!

Hi I am Kellie. My family and I currently live in Georgia. I am a Pinterest enthusiast and blogger who loves to share recipes and decorating tips. Also, a newly empty nester. My favorite things are my camera, curling up to watch a good movie, decorating for the holidays and spending time with my family. I love making new friends and made quite a few here. Jesus is my priority. Let’s get creative together!

Table of Contents

Fun Fact: The Table of Contents and Reading Progress areas auto populate, you don’t have to do a thing to make those show information. The Table of Contents uses your headings to track sections, and the reading progress bar just moves as your reader scrolls down the page. Pretty cool! You can also disable any of these features if you prefer they not appear in your sidebar or elsewhere on the site. Everything is easily customized, and toggled off/on with this theme.
