The first surprise here: there's not a grain of sugar in these cupcakes. The second surprise: your kids will love them anyway. TIP: I just make mashed potatoes using the instant mashed potato flakes. It is smooth, and the food coloring mixes well with it.

  1. Heat oven to 375*. Line 12 muffin tin cups with foil bake cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the meat loaf ingredients until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the lined cups (the liners should be about three quarters full).
  3. Place the filled muffin tins on cookie sheets and bake the 'cupcakes' for about 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  4. Divide the mashed potatoes among three small bowls and stir a few drops of food coloring into each batch to create blue, yellow, and pink 'frostings.' Spread a generous dollop on each 'cupcake.'.
