I made these cupcakes for my Anniversary. Presentation was awesome! Delicious and simple to make too.

Fill prepared cup cake cups 2/3 full.Add a few drops food coloring, if desired. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full-----OK, which is it?????? very confusing!!

I made these for Easter. What a great hit. I had to use ordinary Cranberry Juice rather than the Cran Lemonade because I could not find that particular item. They were still great. Easy to make and decorate. Would definitely do them again.

This sounds very good and like we would enjoy it even my husband .
