Since it’s June, I’m just going to say we’re officially in summer. I mean, that’s what my son thinks anyway. There are so many cookouts and parties over the next several weeks, and I love a good dessert. Even better when that dessert fits a theme – like these Fourth of July Uncle Sam cupcakes. Though, I’m pretty certain you could whip these up for any summer gathering – not just the Fourth. Am I right?
I think the Uncle Sam cupcake kit is really cute and you can find it on Walmart’s website (so it’s easy to order!) The recipe is fairly simple – you can use a mix for the cupcakes and a store bought icing. No need to stress over this – we’re supposed to be enjoying summer!
Uncle Sam Cupcake Kit
White Cake Mix
Cherry Pie Filling
After gathering all of your ingredients, you will first make the cake mix according to box directions.
Fill your cupcake wrappers a little over halfway full. Bake your cupcakes according to box directions.
Once your cupcakes are cool, use a coring tool (or use a knife if you don’t have one) to take the center out of your cupcakes.
Fill the center of your cupcakes with cherry pie filling. (blueberry would be awesome too!)
Pipe icing onto your cupcake.
Add the eyeballs and paper hat included in the Uncle Sam cupcake kit. Enjoy!
The trickiest part of the Uncle Sam cupcakes might be adding the filling. (But, really, it isn’t super challenging.)
And the end result is totally worth it. All of your friends and family will love this summer treat.
What do you take to cookouts and summer parties? Desserts? Appetizers? Or do you go big and volunteer for an entree? I like to stick to desserts and snack foods (so appetizers.)
