After reading the other reviews, my daughter and I decided to make these cupcakes for a holiday party. On the recommendation of other readers, we used one heaping tablespoon of each color - and I even thought that was a little too much. The batter rose over the cupcake liners and onto the pan. They were time-consuming, but I had read that before starting so I was ready for it. We took our time, and it was SO WORTH IT! They came out soooo pretty! We layered our colors the opposite, so it was blue on the bottom, white, then red on top. The next time I make these, I will just add a tablespoon of each color, not a heaping tablespoon. Our batch only made 14 cupcakes. By making this change the next time, it should stretch our batch to 15-16 cupcakes. Thank you for the great idea!
