  • In a large bowl, mix cake mix, oil, eggs and water until cake batter is creamy.
  • Gently fold patriotic candy sprinkles into the cake batter. If you mix them in too much the colors will blend.
  • Add batter to cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Once done, let cool.


  • Make the homemade frosting by mixing powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and milk into bowl. Mix until smooth and fluffy. Add extra milk to get desired thickness.
  • If desired, add red or blue food coloring. Frost the cupcakes.


  • Top cupcakes with additional candy sprinkles, small American Flags and other patriotic decorations of your choice.
  • For an extra fun 4th of July party display, fill a┬áplastic wine glass 3/4 full of┬ápatriotic candy and place cupcakes on top of candy.
