Fourth of July Spectacular Minnie Mouse Cupcakes

But First Desserts
The fourth of July is around the corner. For us, it is a perfect holiday to celebrate the independence of our country with the traditional Bar-be-que parties and beautiful fireworks with family and friends. I love to have 4th July celebrated with patriotism even though we are not having a full-day party.
