There won't be any grumbling about who got the biggest piece because our patriotic, flag-frosted Fourth of July cake is made of white cupcakes.
Freeze the cupcakes ahead of time so they are firmer to frost.
Let frosting set just a bit between mixing in the color and spreading it on the cupcakes. It will become more stable and brighter in color.
