Yankee Doodle Dandy

Put together an easy picnic to enjoy after the parade. Buy American flag toothpicks to hold sandwich slices together and for decorating cupcakes--plus you can wave them at the parade!


Big Bang

Pack up some plastic cups, a thermos of lemonade, and a bag of snacks for the firework displays. Don't forget a blanket or low lawn chairs--and mosquito repellent can save the evening.

I saw some things listed on here like a picture of cupcakes and it said Yankee Doodle something and I also saw another thing listed her and something with rice krispies but when I click on them I can't get the recipes to come up? What's going on? I have a picnic to go to on Sunday and need to make something to take along and was thinking these cupcakes would be the easiest and best and I need a quick something to make that's not too expensive. I have tons of cake mixes and sprinkles too so I thought I'd make these but can't get the recipe to show up. What am I doing wrong?

i have a suggestion, make the cup cakes from the cake mix boxes that you have and inject them with icing, jelly or pudding of your liking

The same thing happened to me. Just click on the link for the Top 20 recipes beneath the firework picture then at the top there will be tabs and click on the one left of the top 20 recipe tab to view all recipes. That's how I found the recipe I was looking for.
