Fireworks Cupcakes

This simple and fun recipe is sure to be a big hit during your 4th of July celebrations. The following is the low fat version but you can follow the regular recipe in the back of the any yellow cake mix box. My kids call them explosively good and fat free! Enjoy!


1 box of yellow cake mix
3 eggs whites
1/3 cup of all natural apple sauce
A few tables spoons of red sugar or red food coloring
White Frosting
Sparkle toothpicks (we picked them up at our local grocery store in the mixed drinks area)


Blend the first 3 ingredients for about 2 minutes. Then add the red sugar or coloring with a spatula. My boys like the red sugar best since it leaves little streaks in the cake. Bake as directed on the back of your yellow cake mix box. Mix the frosting with the red and blue food coloring. Leave some frosting white. Decorate like flags by putting one stripe for each color. Add a little red sugar for the stars and top with the sparkle toothpick.
