How do I make it ?
Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes, blending 1/4 cup drink mix into batter before spooning into prepared muffin cups. Cool 10 min. in pans. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Add milk to remaining drink mix in large bowl; stir until mix is dissolved. Add cream cheese, butter and icing sugar; beat with mixer until blended.
Spoon frosting into large pastry bag fitted with large star pastry tip. Use to pipe about 2-1/2 Tbsp. frosting onto each cupcake. Decorate with remaining ingredients.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
If You Don't Have a Pastry Bag
Spread frosting onto cupcakes using small spatula or knife.
Store cupcakes in tightly covered container in refrigerator up to 3 days.
