Step 1
Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and 1/2 tsp. salt. Beat butter and 1-1/4 cups sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add whole eggs, 1 at time, beating well after each addition. Add dressing and 1 tsp. vanilla; mix well.
Step 3
Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition. Mix vinegar and food colouring until blended; stir into batter. Spoon into 18 paper-lined muffin cups.
Step 4
Bake 18 to 20 min. or until toothpick inserted in centres comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Step 5
Beat egg whites, water, corn syrup, cream of tartar, and remaining salt, sugar and vanilla, in large heatproof bowl with mixer until blended. Place bowl over saucepan of simmering water; beat with hand mixer on high speed 7 min. or until mixture forms soft peaks.
Step 6
Transfer bowl to countertop. Beat 1 to 3 min. or until frosting is thickened and of desired spreading consistency. Cool to room temperature. Spread onto cupcakes; top with coloured sugar.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
The cupcakes can be baked ahead of time. Cool, then store in airtight container up to 24 hours before frosting as directed. Or for longer storage, freeze in freezer container up to 1 month. Thaw before frosting as directed.
