Kool Aid cupcakes recipe

If you are looking for a fun fruity way to dress up your next batch of cupcakes, here is an easy recipe to perk up your boxed white cake mixes (and white frostings). I made this recipe for my oldest son's birthday party several years ago using orange for the cake and cherry for the frosting-they were a hit. 


  • White cake mix (and ingredients to complete cake as directed) 
  • Can white frosting 
  • 1/2 cup pre-sweetened Kool Aid mix 

Prepare cake mix following the directions on the box, adding 1/4 cup of your favorite pre-sweetened Kool Aid mix. Mix thoroughly and bake as directed. Add remaining Kool Aid to frosting and mix well. Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.

Cook's Notes-only use pre-sweetened Kool Aid in the canister for this recipe. I have not tested any other Kool Aid variations.
