Our Best Cupcake Recipes for a Family Memorial Day Grill-Out
White Chocolate Raspberry Cupcakes
Whip up a patriotic treat that tastes delicious. Bake white chocolate raspberry cupcakes in blue wrappers and top with a red raspberry drizzle for a perfect Memorial Day dessert. We love the paper flag toppers used here, too!
Root Beer Float Cupcakes
We love how colorful this Memorial Day dessert idea is! Dress up white-frosted cupcakes with red, white, and blue sparklers made from candy coating. Melt the candy coating and add to frosting bags, then pipe swirl designs onto waxed paper. When the shapes are dry, gently remove them from the waxed paper and place them directly into the cupcake frosting.
Orange Cream Pop Cupcakes
Cherry-Almond Vanilla Cupcakes
Key Lime Pie Cupcakes
Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes
If you're sticking to a patriotic color scheme for your Memorial Day desserts, these are the cupcakes for you. Bake red velvet cupcakes in blue papers, and top with raspberry cream cheese frosting.
Hot Fudge Sundae Cupcakes
These cupcakes have all the flavors of a classic sundae, with none of the gooey, drippy mess! Top chocolate cupcakes with frosting, chocolate drizzle, chopped nuts, and a maraschino cherry.
Neapolitan Cupcake Cones
Enjoy these delicious Neapolitan cupcake cones in place of ice cream! They're easy to make, and we love the way they look placed in cake cones. Finish them off with plenty of sprinkles and a cherry on top.
Easy Berry Cheesecakes
This easy red, white, and blue dessert will quickly become one of your favorite summer recipes. Use a pastry bag to squeeze cream cheese frosting into each cupcake, then add frosting swirls and fresh fruit to the top of each. They're quick, easy, and delicious!
Spiked Raspberry-Lemonade Cupcakes
These boozy Memorial Day cupcakes are made with lemons, raspberries, and a splash of raspberry liqueur. For a kid-friendly version, substitute milk for the liqueur.
Island Bananas Foster Cupcakes
Anything with the word 'island' in it has to be perfect for summer, and these cupcakes are no exception. The cupcakes are made with coconut milk, shredded coconut, and topped with a traditional banana foster topping. Yum!
