This turned out really cute and festive, and the cake and icing were really good, if you can get past the fact that you are eating something red and blue! It was a little tricky getting the right proportions of the three colors of batter. Put about a tablespoon of each color in a muffin cup, spreading to the edges each time. I used white paper baking cups, and the red, white and blue layers showed clearly through. Also, one batch of frosting would not cover 24 cupcakes as shown in the photo - would probably need one and a half or two batches.
