When the Fourth of July is celebrated, food tends to come in shades of red, white and blue. It happens with everything, but most often in desserts and snacks.
Cupcakes in a Jar and Firecracker Cakeletts both are cute ideas for July Fourth. But with the second treat it helps to pay close attention to the recipe.
The first is an easy twist on a cupcake. After dividing the cake mix and tinting it, I recommend adding small layers to the jars. On a few, I put in too much cake mix and the small cakes overflowed the lip of the jar when the cakes rose.
