  4. Spoon into muffin pan cups.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 min. or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 min. Remove to wire racks; turn cupcakes upside-down and cool completely.
  6. Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk in small bow.  Stir in your favorite shades of food coloring.  Spoon carefully over cupcakes and set up slightly.
