  • Prepare cupcakes according to box’s directions. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely.
  • Add butter, powdered sugar and 4 tablespoons milk to a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to beat together all ingredients, starting on low and gradually increasing to high. Add more milk if frosting is too thick.
  • Beat ingredients until smooth, creating semi-stiff peaks.
  • Divide buttercream into 4 separate bowls. Add one color of gel food coloring to each bowl. To achieve a rich color, add about 4-6 small drops (a bit less than 1/2 a teaspoon).
  • Mix each bowl of buttercream until completely tinted.
  • Attach Wilton icing tip #21 to a piping bag. Scoop colored buttercream into piping bag, alternating colors.
  • Frost each cupcake.
  • Decorate each cupcake with cereal (making sure to use plenty of the marshmallow shapes).
