Colorful Cupcakes…

Looking for a festive way to jazz up your Memorial Weekend BBQ?  How about about a batch of  red, white and blue cupcakes for a little something different?

Simply divide your cupcake batter into 3 bowls…  add food coloring… and mix.

In your super crusty cupcake pan (c’mon you know you have one :))… fill your cupcake liner 1/4 of the way full with the blue batter…

Then the white…

Then finish up with the red batter.

Bake… frost… and add a few sprinkles…

Rinse and repeat 23 more times…

Or 35 more times if you have a Cupcake Courier

Hide the cupcakes until it’s time for dessert 🙂

    What type of frosting do you use? It’s really pretty.

      Regular vanilla frosting with a tablespoon of water mixed in. Then I whip it in the mixer for about 1 minute to make it light and fluffy 🙂

    I really like the cupcake holder!!!

  • Holly

    I love the frosting! Do you have a recipe? And how do you get it to look so pretty =)?

  • Lena

    I have a cupcake holder! I LOVE it! They are all grossly overpriced but worth every penny (does that make sense? ;0) No more smashed cupcakes, no more toothpicks and saran wrap all over. And light enough for my kids to carry home after a school party!
    Oh yeah…. I love the colorful cupcakes too! =D

      I love the cupcake holder too 🙂 It’s a great investment. I like how this particular one holds 36 cupcakes…

    I love the colorful idea!! I had a student bring in rainbow cupcakes (with ALL SIX COLORS) for St. Patrick’s Day this year. I think the tri-color is enough for me to tackle 🙂 A great 4th of July treat, too! Thanks, Mavis!

    Those look great. I don’t know why it never occurred to me to make tri-colored cupcakes. I’ve made full rainbow cupcakes several times using the same method. They were a huge hit at our GSA bake sale.

    I just made some this am for a BBQ I’m heading to this afternoon! THANKS for another great idea!

    I love to make color cakes i did a rainbow for my daughters b-day a couple years ago, i do the red, white, and blue for 4th of july . i do all the holidays in color cupcakes/cakes. just a little note the gel food coloring comes out more vivid and brighter than the regular, i get mine form walmart in the party/cake section.
