  • 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.

Note

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.

    Fun and EASY. I did this for our daughters 8th birthday. I also made flower shapes. with light green frosted cupcakes as the stem, and pastel colors for the petals :)
