TEST KITCHEN TIP:  For seasonal or special occasions, color batter with food coloring.  For fun, color batter for one cupcake yellow and the rest a different color. Give a prize to the person who gets the cup of gold!  (Be sure to bake cupcakes in foil-lined baking cups so batter color does not show through the paper.)
