Americana cupcake cones, red white & blue, 4th of july dessert idea

Happy (almost) 4th of July everyone!

It's about that time! Time to start planning out all of those 4th of July party ideas but if you haven't thought about it yet, no worries, I have some great ideas to get you going.
This week, we will be bringing you inspiration on QUICK & EASY  
4th of July PARTY IDEAS!

Today we are focusing on some fun 4th of July dessert ideas! Which, in my opinion, are the best kind! ;)

IDEA #1 - First up: CUPCAKE CONES!
I know most of you have probably seen a version of this idea before but this one of mine is by far - the easiest, . . . as it requires NO BAKING!

Here's my IDEA on fun Americana Cupcake Cones:

Here's a recipe for Americana Cupcake Cones:

 Need a super fast FUN food for the kids? They always LOVE this one!
~ box of {jumbo} size cake cones
~ {premade} cupcakes

Take the cupcake wrapper off the cupcake & pushed them down into the cones. No worries if you mess up the icing - either fix it the best you can or re-ice them. I just took a small spatula to fix it - they are so CUTE, no one will care if they aren't perfect! Oh - btw - I also added some patriotic sprinkles to them to "hide" any flaws! heehee  That's IT!

And my second idea . . . 

How about some ROCKcandy cupcakes? Whaaaaaaat?

 How to create ROCKcandy cupcakes:

here's what you will need:
~ premade cupcakes
~ ribbon or ric rac to tie around cupcakes
~ rock candy
~ optional: pkg. of red, white & blue mini fans from Target Dollar Spot

This is the perfect idea when you are in a rush but have no time to bake. Simply buy premade cupcakes & some rock candy. Sprinkle rock candy on top. Tie ribbon or ric rac around the cupcakes. Add patriotic fan if you're feeling really crazy. DONE. Simple. Cute & festive!
