Red, White, & Blue Cupcakes

Start with a white cake mix. (I didn't have a white cake mix, so I used cherry chip instead. It worked pretty well.)  Scoop out about 1 cup of batter and place it in a separate bowl. Add red food gel to the batter and mix. Take another cup of batter and place in another bowl. Add blue food gel to that batter.

Using a mini ice cream scoop, add a drop of each of the colored batters into a cupcake liner.

Bake according to the package directions.

I frosted the cupcakes with a large star tip. Then added red and blue sprinkles.
