3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs), softened to room temperature (Around 1.5 Sticks)
1 Cup (16 tbs)
Self rising flour
1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
Red food coloring
In a large mixing bowl, beat 1 ½ sticks butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Starting and ending with egg white, alternate adding 4 egg whites and 1 ½ cups self-rising flour, beating until each is thoroughly incorporated. Beat in 1 tablespoon water and 1 teaspoon vanilla until just incorporated. Divide batter into two equal parts. To one part add 10 drops of yellow food coloring and 1 drop of red food coloring. Stir until batter is a nice orange color. Now, evenly place batter into muffin tins which have been line with baking cups using ¼ cup batter for each cupcake. This will make 6 orange cupcakes and 6 white cupcakes. Bake at 400 degrees until fully cooked and golden, about 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the oven. Let cupcakes stand a couple of minutes, then turn them onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve un-iced or iced. In my next upload, I will be making Halloween Cupcake Icing, and my grandson, Carter, will be helping me decorate the cupcakes, but these are enjoyable as is! Happy Halloween! --Betty
