Simple vanilla cupcakes are taken up a notch, thanks to the addition of red and blue food coloring. To make these sweet treats as colorful as they are, take a standard vanilla cupcake batter and divide it into thirds. Color one section with blue food coloring, another with red, and leave the third one white. Simply swirl the batter together into the cupcake tins and voila! Patriotic goodies that are perfect for your next holiday barbecue.
