Adorable dip-dyed flag cupcakes

 
Wow your guests with way cute cupcakes that are actually pretty darn easy to make. Whip up a batch the night before your bash, serve on a pretty tray and wait for the ooh-ing and ahh-ing to begin. Trust us, it’s pretty much guaranteed.

 

 

Ingredients:

White or yellow cake batter, made from your favorite boxed mix or recipe

Red and blue food coloring

Icing, store bought or homemade

Sprinkles and other decorations

 

Directions:

Mix up the cake batter according to box directions or recipe. Then, divide batter evenly among three bowls. Add blue food coloring, drop by drop, to one bowl and stir until desired color is achieved. Add red food coloring, drop by drop, to another bowl, and stir until desired color is achieved. Leave third bowl alone.

 

Fill cupcake pan prepared with muffin liners two-thirds of the way full with batter, layering the red, white and blue evenly. Bake according to directions and cool completely before frosting. Decorate as you like with icing and sprinkles, or create designs using fruit. We love the idea of using strawberries, blueberries and raspberries to freshen up the festive baby cakes.
