These red white and blue frosted cupcakes are a win every time. A simple trick makes them SO EASY to make you'll never believe it! Can be adapted with different colors for other occasions.
Add cupcake liners to a muffin pan.
Prepare the cupcake batter according to the mix instructions. Bake as directed.
After baking, cool cupcakes for 5 minutes in the pan then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cupcakes are cooling prepare the frosting.
In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer) beat the butter until light and fluffy.
Repeat with blue gel food coloring on the opposite side leaving clean space in between (refer to photo)
Add in the white buttercream into the prepared piping bag.
Test pipe some frosting onto a paper towel until the red and blue color come through on the frosting.
