Make red velvet cupcakes like these from

One special dessert for July 4th is red, white and blue cupcakes.
These cupcakes from New York City’s Magnolia Bakery combine red velvet cake, white frosting and a blueberry garnish.
You can also create a tray of cupcakes, lined up in red, white and blue “stripes,” by tinting 1/3 of the frosting red, 1/3 blue, and leaving 1/3 of the tops white.
More options: Use blue decorating sugar (sanding sugar) to sprinkle the tops; cut out blue stars from fondant; or use stripes of red and white fondant over a thin layer of icing, topped with a blueberry.
If you prefer something other than red velvet cake, look for red cupcake liners.
TIP: Make mini cupcakes instead of full-size ones. With all the food that revelers will have consumed before dessert, smaller is better.
