Fourth of July is the perfect time to use our July dessert recipe ideas. Here are some easy cupcake decorating ideas and some delicious dessert ideas to use as your Fourth of July cupcakes and dessert ideas this year at your barbeque. Red, white and blue cupcakes are really easy to make, and fun to eat. All you will need is some food coloring, some cupcakes and some sugar cake decorations.
Have the kids help you frost and decorate your mini desserts. You can use frosting colored with red and blue food coloring. Put some strawberries and blueberries on top of your desserts. Dress them up for the Independence Day celebration.
Most families have a barbecue on the 4th of July, and there are some wonderful dessert recipes you can dress up in red, white and blue. Put some strawberries and blueberries on an ice cream cake. Add a sparkler to the top and light it before you serve it. (just make sure to remove it before it hits the cake!) A cheesecake can be decorated with fruit too, raspberries and blueberries make it fit your holiday party theme.
You can make red, white and blue parfaits with the help of some fruit, whipped cream and your favorite flavor ice cream. Simply layer the ingredients in a parfait glass until it’s filled to the top. Add a dash more whipped cream and one more piece of fruit. It will taste as good as it looks!
How about some cookies decorated with some red, white and blue frosting. Make lots of star shaped cookies using your favorite sugar cookie recipe. Mix some food coloring with white frosting and put it right on your star cookies. You might want to double your recipe to make a lot, your guests will be hungry!
There are plenty of delicious dessert recipes you can use for your barbecue party on the 4th. Some of my favorites include older recipes like: USA Angel Food Cake topped with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream, July 4th Macaroons and Independence Day Meltaways. And of course, some new sweet recipes like: Star Spangled Cookie Bouquet, Red White and Blue Whoopie Cookies, Happy Birthday USA Brownies and the cold, refreshing Star Spangled Berry Parfaits. It’s always fun to try new recipes, and what better time than the 4th of July!
Three cheers for the red, white and blue … especially when it’s red, white and blue desserts to help us celebrate America’s Independence Day with our family and friends at an All American Barbeque party. And then, it’s on to the fireworks display in your town! What better way is there to spend this special American holiday than celebrating with friends, family and good food. You can use these dessert ideas any time of the year and you can change the food coloring and fruit colors to fit any holiday of the year.
