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!
