Try to cook Fourth of July cupcakes – they look so nice. If your friends are fond of sweets, they will find them to be among the tastiest Fourth of July desserts. If you have a nonstick or a dark pan, the oven should be heated to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, and to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for other kinds of pans.

After baking the cupcakes, let them stay in pans for at least 10 minutes. Then you can remove them from pans and let them cool for approximately half an hour. Now frost all cupcakes with white icing. Then make them look like American flags by placing red and blue gems on the white frost. Keep in mind that blue gems should be in the upper left.

Besides 4-th of July food, you might consider having special drinks. For example, you can prepare a patriotic milkshake. To prepare it, take vanilla ice-cream; blue and red food coloring; milk; white, blue and red sprinkles; and whipped cream. Blend blue food coloring, milk, and ice-cream. Pour the substance in glasses (make sure that they are cold), and put them into the freezer. It is the first layer.

The second layer will be white, and the third one – red. Do not forget to put the glasses in the freezer after each layer. Otherwise, the colors will just mix. After all, layers are ready, add sprinkles and whipped cream on the top.

While you are waiting for the mixture for the Independence Day cake to cool down, take another bowl and combine mascarpone and cream cheese thoroughly. Add vanilla extract and lemon zest and juice to this mixture. For the next stage of preparing your Fourth of July cake, you need either a glass or a metal bowl. Take whipping cream and whisk sugar into it. The cream should become fluffy. Now combine these two mixtures. Whisk this substance gently. It should become well combined, fluffy, and soft.

Take the baking dish out of the refrigerator. Smooth and spread the filling on the top of it with a spoon. The filling and crust should settle. Take plastic wrap and cover the dish tightly.

Leave some space in the left corner for blueberries. The cake is ready. Before serving, cut it into squares.
