Captain America Inspired Cupcakes #Recipe #CaptainAmerica #Marvel #MarvelInfinityWar

In the upcoming Marvel's Infinity War;  Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet -- the evil Thanos.  In honor of the upcoming movie, why not make some Captain America inspired Cupcakes!

Ingredients:

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the cupcake liners into the muffin wells. 
  2. Combine the cake mix, water, vegetable oil and egg whites mixing well.
      
  3. Add in the several drops of the blue gel food coloring and stir to combine.
      
  4. Fill each cupcake well about 2/3 full. 
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes. 
  6. Insert a toothpick into the cupcakes around 18 minutes. If it comes out clean the cupcakes are done. 
  7. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and let cool.

  13. Scoop the white frosting in the large gallon freezer bag.
      
  14. Gently squeeze the frosting from the bag and onto the top of the cupcake in a circular motion.
