The following post about Red White and Blue Cupcakes as well as Gift Card giveaway is sponsored by Fandango Family. Opinions expressed are that of my own. FYI, I am also excited to announce that I am a Fandango Family Ambassador!
I am looking forward to seeing MARVEL’S AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, and hubby and I are probably going to make it a date-night movie.
My kiddos aren’t quite old enough yet to appreciate the film (PG-13), but that doesn’t mean they should have to miss out on all the awesome comic book festivities. We happen to be huge Captain America fans and between clothes, toys, and even the shield, we are showing our Steve Rogers pride.
My little guy and I decided to celebrate the May 1st film release by making Red, White, and Blue cupcakes. If you would like to recreate these, the details are below!
Captain America Inspired Red White and Blue Cupcakes
What you will need:
1 – 16.25 oz Box of White Cake Mix
1 to 2 Containers of White Icing
Blue and Red Food Coloring
Optional: Red and Blue Sparkle Icing and Patriotic Colored Muffin Cups
Prepare the White Cake Mix according to the box and preheat the oven to the specified temperature. Then divide the batter into 3 parts.
Leave one bowl white. Then add 34 drops of Red food coloring to one bowl and combine. Then add 12 drops of blue to the other bowl and combine.
Next, pour 1 tbsp of Red batter into each muffin cup. Then 1 to 1 1/2 tbsps of White on top of that until the Red is covered. Finally repeat with the Blue batter. Be careful to not mix.
Place these into the oven and cook according to the box directions. FYI, since this is a thicker cupcake, I had to add an additional 5 minutes onto my time.
Be sure to do a toothpick check and allow your cupcakes to completely cool before decorating with your favorite icing.
I was so excited with how the inside of these turned out! Plus, they were tasty and the kids loved their patriotic cupcakes.

About MARVELS’Avengers: Age of Ultron:
This sequel to the smash-hit comic-book epic The Avengers finds the iconic superhero team dealing with a threat of their own making: a sentient robot called Ultron (voice of James Spader), who was originally designed as part of a peacekeeping program. Since the events of the last film, Captain America (Chris Evans), Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) have been working to take down various cells of a secret society of villains known as HYDRA. Their zeal to make the world a better, safer place inspires Tony Stark, genius billionaire and alter ego of Iron Man, to create Ultron in order to respond to additional threats that the Avengers aren’t able to handle.
Ultron, unfortunately, takes this directive way too seriously — he believes that world peace can only be achieved by exterminating humanity, and he’ll stop at nothing to accomplish this goal. The battle between the Avengers and Ultron is further complicated by the appearance of superpowered siblings Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), who ally themselves with the homicidal android. Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders co-star as, respectively, S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives Nick Fury and Maria Hill. Joss Whedon, writer and director of the previous Avengers movie, returns in both capacities here. ~ Source Jack Rodgers, Rovi
