In the last Fun Food post, I featured the fireworks cupcakes.  Now, we are going to take a look and consider making actual individual firecracker cupcakes just in time for the 4th of July!

There are really easy instructions with lots of photos shared on the Sweet & Crunchy blog at OhNuts which makes creating your own fireworks cupcakes a breeze.  Well easy that is, we might not want a breeze when playing with firecrackers.

These would truly be de"light"ful cupcakes to serve on the 4th of July.
