Happy 4th of July! Today I made some simple red, white & blue cupcakes for a cookout. I cheated and used a box mix (white cake) and then Nigella Lawson's Royal Icing, which is very forgiving. Just spread it around the top of the cupcake it becomes smooth and shiny. Taste wise, I definitely prefer a buttercream frosting, but I was low on powdered sugar, so this worked out well. I let the icing set for a few minutes and then added some blueberries & raspberries. Easy and delicious!
