I am not much of a baker or much of a cook for that matter but for the sake of my family I have been making more of an effort to try new things these last couple of years. Don't get me wrong, I can follow a recipe but I never really try new things on my own. This may be why I had never,ever used food coloring prior to last night. Issy really wanted to help me make something and with 4Th of July so close, I thought it would be fun to make some Independence Day themed cupcakes. Brandon even helped us by frosting the red stripes on the cupcakes.
