4th of July Cupcakes + Printable Cupcake Wrappers and Pinwheel Toppers(Used in this project: Oval Labels in Fest style with Free Printable Cupcake Wrappers and Pinwheel Toppers.)

No 4th of July party is complete without some festive, fruity treats. Cupcakes are so easy to make and perfect for entertaining. When planning a party menu, I always try to manage my time by choosing a few simple recipes that can be made ahead of time and don’t take very much effort. That way I can spend more time with my favorite part of hosting a party – the decorations! For this dessert I chose to use Betty Crocker cake mix and frosting. I recommend baking the cupcakes the day before the party so all you need to do is frost and decorate them.
