4th of July

I spent July 4th at my parent's house in Virginia with my parents, 3 of my sisters and 10 of my nieces and nephews.  I made some festive cupcakes to help us celebrate the holiday!  I just used white cake mix, divided it in half, and colored it.  After the blue and red (ish) cupcakes cooled I cut them in half, squirted the middle with some frosting and stuck a different colored top on!  Worked out perfectly! 

My parents don't own a pastry bag and so we decided to try this frosting.  It was awesome!  Worked like a charm and it only took 1 can to do the middle and top of 24 cupcakes!
