I made these cupcakes for Easter and they were a great success. They're easy and festive. I separated the mix into 3 bowls and added a different flavor of drink mix to each bowl - about a tablespoon to each bowl. I used grape, cherry, and orange. Frost however you like and decorate with sprinkles, colored sugar, etc.

This recipe was so fun and cute! I used resberry lemonade flavor kool-aid and made regular cupcakes(baking time 18-20min) and they came out perfect. I also mixed one package of kool-aid with a container of regular frosting and it came out a beautiful color and good flavor but a little too tart for frosting so I used store-bought strawberry frosting for the rest and it tasted perfect. :)

I tried it and they turned out adorable, but I think 4 packages is way too much they were extremely sour! I tried the mixed berry package and the cherry package. It was just too much for my taste.
