Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Prepare frosting as directed; spoon into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to pipe frosting in circular pattern on tops of cupcakes, starting at edge of each and working toward centre. Repeat with red wine syrup, following swirl lines of frosting.
