Red, White and Blue Strawberry Cupcakes

I have another 4th of July treat to share with you!
These patriotic cupcakes are the trifecta of awesome baked goods...


You start with strawberry cupcakes and cream cheese frosting,
topped with strawberries dipped in white chocolate and blue sugar.

Oh, how I love these strawberries! YUM!

You can find my favorite strawberry cake recipe start with a cake mix!
It will make approx. 30 cupcakes (great for a family barbeque).
Bake the cupcakes at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes.
While they cool, make a batch of this frosting:

Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in vanilla. Gradually add sugar, beating until smooth. Pipe on cooled cupcakes.

Rinse 30 small strawberries and pat them dry with paper towels.
Melt some candy melts or white chocolate chips in a small bowl.
Fill another small bowl with blue sanding sugar.

Dip the bottom 2/3 of each strawberry in the white chocolate,
then immediately dip the bottom 1/3 in the sugar.
Place on wax paper to harden.

Next, cover a small plate with blue sanding sugar.
Hold your cupcake sideways and press the edge of the frosting into the sugar.
Roll the cupcake, keeping just the edge on the plate.
Use a pastry brush to brush off any sugar on the cupcake liner.

When the strawberries have set up, place one on top of each cupcake.
