Copycat Cupcakes

I love "following" other blogs so I can read, look and {try} to recreate the fun things I find. I wanted something fun and different to make for the 4th of July holiday. I came across the cutest cupcakes HERE and didn't think it would be too hard to make. I really do love to bake because there is so much you can do and have fun with it.

This is how they started out. I didn't divide the red and blue cake mix as evenly as I should have but hey it was my first time so I wasn't too hard on myself.

This is how they turned out!!

I was so excited. Kinda like a kid in a candy store when I pulled them out of the oven and saw all of the different colors. I couldn't wait for them to cool off so I could put icing on them and sprinkle the red, white and blue decorations on them.

I made some with chocolate frosting as my eldest is not a fan of vanilla icing.
The cake was made with egg whites and the icing was sugar free. I didn't feel AS bad when I shoved one in my mouth.

Hope everyone had a happy holiday with family and friends! I know I did!
