This past weekend I went to my first tailgate in over 9 years. I don’t know why I have waited so long, but it was worth it. There was lots of food, drinks, flip-cup and football. Yay for food and football. Boo for drinks and flip-cup. Just kidding, just boo to flip-cup. I had never played, and my team kept losing until they replaced a certain player. Hmmmm….
I had seen a segment on one of the morning shows that Katherine & Sophie were on, how to make colorful cupcakes. I decided to try them out for special tail gate cupcakes! You can use any colors to make it work for your team. We were going to the UCLA Homecoming so I made them Blue, Yellow, and White. I had to use some regular blue food coloring and also the blue from the Neon pack to get it to be a lighter shade of blue.
Don’t be scared if your cupcakes, once cooked, don’t show the colors. When you open them up, SURPRISE!! I had a lot of fun mixing up how I added in the colors. A few, at the end, I swirled around with a toothpick. They were delicious and I can see how you could get carried away easily with making them all the time! Each liner used about 3 super full spoonfuls.
