  • 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.
  • 2
    Make cake batter as directed on cake mix box, adding gelatin with the water. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (about 2/3 full).
  • 3
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat powdered sugar and butter with spoon or with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. Beat in vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the milk. Gradually beat in just enough of the remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. Divide frosting among 4 small bowls. Stir 6 drops yellow food color into frosting in one bowl. Stir 4 drops red food color into frosting in second bowl. Stir 6 to 8 drops blue food color into frosting in third bowl. Stir 4 drops yellow and 2 drops red food color into frosting in fourth bowl.
  • 5
    Frost 6 cupcakes with each color of frosting. Poke 4 or 5 white baking chips, flat side up, into frosting on each cupcake to look like polka dots. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • Have fun making other colors and flavours of cupcakes by using lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry or watermelon gelatin.
