Welcome to Cupcake Wars!
Boy oh boy do we have plenty of sugar for you! If you didn't start at Janet's blog: please go there now and start from the beginning.
She's giving away a Cricut Lite Cartridge-Cupcake! How sweet is that?
We don't want you to miss any of the scrumptious projects and some have even left recipes for you to try! As we head into the holiday season, you might just have a new family favorite! This is a one day hop. You should have come from the lovely and talented Jessica.
Now for my fun Cupcake project...
I have been wanting to create my own cupcake mini album for a while now so this blog hop was just the motivation I needed!! I used the Simply Sweet Cricut Cartridge to cut my cupcakes out of chipboard.

And now for my recipe!! I don't make cupcakes from scratch ever so this recipe is easy and super fun to do.
Recipe from Betty Crocker
2 boxes SuperMoist® white cake mix 
2 1/2   cups water
2/3 cup vegetable oil     
6 egg whites 
Red, yellow, green and blue liquid food colors  
2 containers (1 lb each) Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting

1.   Heat oven to 350°F. Place jumbo paper baking cup in each of 12 jumbo muffin cups.
2.  In large bowl, beat cake mixes, water, oil and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 1 minute, then on medium speed 2 to 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until well blended.
3.  Divide batter among 6 separate bowls; tint each bowl a different color. For red, add 18 drops red food color. Orange: 4 drops red and 12 drops yellow. Yellow: 12 drops yellow. Green: 12 drops green. Blue: 12 drops blue. Purple: 9 drops red and 6 drops blue.
4.  In each muffin cup, place 1 tablespoon red batter. Add about 1 tablespoon of each remaining color batter until you have added all 6 colors.
5.  Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
6.  Pipe or spread frosting on cupcakes.
When you bite into these the colors are just so cool!
