Food Coloring as desired

     Add first set of ingredients to bowl and beat with mixer til well incorporated.  Drop by 1/4 cup batter into Patriotic Cupcake Liners and bake at 375 for 15-25 minutes...(full disclosure, ... I forgot to set the timer and have no idea the exact time...#whoops ...just keep an eye on them and test by patting the tops, #mymethod ).  Meanwhile, beat together second set of ingredients til smooth, add food coloring as desired for Patriotic theme, and frost as desired.  The macros account for 1 Tablespoon of Frosting per cupcake.  Chill the Frosting to firm up, or room temperature for softened.  Store leftovers in fridge, recipe should yield 1 1/4 cup Frosting.  Enjoy  :)
