Tasty Tuesday: Red, White,& Blue Cupcakes

Celebrating the red, white, and blue with cupcakes
  • 1 box of white cake mix (I used Pillsbury)
  • Wilton red (no taste) gel
  • Wilton royal blue gel
  • buttercream icing
  • sprinkles
Follow the directions on the box to mix the cake batter. Divide equally into three bowls. Leave one bowl white, and add gel colorings to the other bowls to get red and blue. Layer the batters into your cupcake liners by the spoonful. You can be neat with flat layers or just goop it in for a more swirly effect. Follow the box’s instructions for cupcake baking time. (My box said I should get 24 cupcakes, but I only got 18.)


Recipe: Vanilla Buttercream Icing

  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 1/2 c. confectioners sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5-6 Tbsp. milk
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Beat in confectioners sugar and vanilla. Add enough milk to achieve desired consistency. Yields about 3 cups
