Red, White, and Blue Vanilla Cupcake Recipe


The Fourth of July is not all about the parties and fireworks. It’s also about America’s Independence and being united, not just as a country, but as a people as well, despite our differences. On that note, I wanted to share with you my journey to finding the perfect

Vanilla Cupcake recipe. I’ve been looking for that recipe that would give me moist and fluffy cupcake at the same time. Welp, I think I found it! I went over to Life Love and Sugar and found the perfect recipe. As great as the cupcake was, I made a couple adjustments to the recipe and sent it to the next stratosphere. Check it out.
