Red Velvet Patriotic Firework Cupcakes
Where Memorial Day is a special day of remembrance (also known as decoration day), there is no getting away from the fact that it is a major holiday for barbecues, fireworks and for many, the start of the school summer holidays. This of course is a time for celebration, and with both of these occasions comes fireworks.
I call these ‘firework cupcakes’ because the frosting looks like a bursting firework from above.
These Red Velvet Patriotic Firework Cupcakes is a recipe that was originally posted in 2014 with better pictures and a step-by-step video.
A number 233 piping tip is required to get this effect. You need to purchase 3 along with 3 bags, as you will need to have 3 different piping bags filled with the red, white and blue frosting.
The piping starts on the outside of the cupcake with the blue. Then a circle of the white frosting, then finish off in the center with the red frosting. To get the ‘stringy’ look of the firework frosting, pipe slowly and drag the frosting to create the look. You can see it detailed in the video.
The cupcakes don’t have to be red velvet, I just think the red looks festive through the muffin cups.
