Real Kool Cupcakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

Made with Kool-Aid. Another improvisation for my son. The secret is to beat the ingredients very well before adding the flour, and very little when the flour is added.

YUM! These are VERY KOOL! I followed Annacia's lead and used 1 c Splenda and strawberry Kool Aid and frosted with butter cream icing tinted with another pack of strawberry. Pretty dark pink treats that the girls adored! Thanks for posting Chocolatl. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag.
