I’ve made many 4th of July desserts the over the years. Here’s a guide to everything from red-white-blue cupcakes to patriotic ice cream.
These cupcakes are my favorite dessert so far. I love the red, white and blue cake, and sparklers on top. You can find the recipe in this post.
I love making flag cakes! I was inspired by the Barefoot Contessa recipe. I used her icing recipe, but the yellow cake inside is a boxed mix.
These patriotic cookie bars are so good. I love how easy they are compared to rolling out actual sugar cookies and using cookie cutters. Here’s the recipe I used and I added some patriotic sprinkles to the batter. You can find the sprinkles at Target or a cake supply store.
We used to make a lot of homemade ice cream; that is before our cat knocked over the ice cream maker’s plastic cover. Now I just resort to buying it. But before that happened, Sophie and I made this patriotic cake batter ice cream. Here’s the post that has the recipe.
I know a lot of people are not big Jello fans, but these stars are just too cute not to make. They would be a fun dessert for little kids too. Here’s the recipe.
Have a great 4th of July!
