  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F (350°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups. Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 24 cupcakes. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, place 3/4 cup of the frosting in small bowl. Tint with red gel food color to desired shade of red. Place three-fourths of the remaining frosting in small bowl, and tint with yellow food color. Tint remaining frosting with blue food color.
  • 3
    Frost cupcakes with red frosting. Place yellow frosting in resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut off small corner of plastic bag, and pipe a diamond-shaped emblem on top of each cupcake. Place blue frosting in another resealable food-storage plastic bag. Cut off small corner of plastic bag, and pipe letter or number in center of each diamond shape.

Expert Tips

  • Use your favorite cake mix, such as chocolate or white, in place of the yellow cake mix.
  • If desired, decorate some of the cupcakes with lightening-bolt shape instead of diamond-shaped superhero emblem.
