If I could surprise my kids with campfire cupcakes every time, they would be so excited–and so would I. These bonfire cupcakes are so easy and fun to make, I’d make them every day!
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we have so much fun making cupcakes for random events. The kids love it, I love it, it’s just super fun to make them smile. One of the best reasons to make cupcakes is no reason at all. Like the little surprise camping trip we took last weekend. We made these fun campfire cupcakes as a surprise to reveal the trip!
If you’re ready to make bonfire cupcakes for your no-reason-at-all, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Bonfire Cupcakes
- Start with my Lazy Girl Cupcakes–they’re so easy and you can’t mess them up if you follow the directions. I literally use them for every cupcake I make, ever.
- Don’t have any Jolly Ranchers? That’s ok, you can still make the flames on the campfire cupcakes with this fun sugar glass recipe by just adding orange, yellow and red food coloring.
- It’s ok if you don’t have the rock candies. These bonfire cupcakes will look great without rocks, if you just add a few more Tootsie Rolls.
