For the 4th of July I helped host a festive cookout for our close friends. Along with watermelon, coleslaw, and strawberries, I made cupcakes for dessert. Almost homemade, I used french vanilla cupcake mix and added blue marbling to the batter to make them more festive! I think they turned out really beautiful, not to mention delicious. They were definitely a party hit!
With seasoned hamburgers and hot dogs, grilled pineapple, homemade deep fried french fries, out cookout was just the right way to get everyone together to celebrate our homeland!
