What You Need

pkg.  (2-layer) white cake mix
cups  thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
drops  food coloring (from each of 4 different colors)

Make It

PREPARE cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 15 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.

SPOON 3/4 cup COOL WHIP into each of 4 small bowls. Tint each with food coloring. Frost 6 cupcakes with each color COOL WHIP.

TAPE 1 piece of ribbon to bottom of each cupcake liner. Arrange cupcakes on large platter just before serving. Tie loose ends of all ribbons together; place on platter. Refrigerate leftovers.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

If you don't have a large platter, use a cake cardboard instead. Look for them in craft stores or bulk food stores. Cover with foil before topping with decorated cupcakes.
Serving Suggestion
Line cupcake tray with sky-blue paper before adding cupcakes for a perfect backdrop to the balloons.
