FIFA World Cupcakes

With the FIFA World Cup final coming up on Sunday, July 13, I decided to get a little into the football spirit by baking cupcakes that resemble the national flags of the top two teams going into the final - Argentina and Germany! Since I have German blood (I have family on my mother's side that immigrated from Germany a couple generations ago), I will probably be rooting for Germany. But I will be eating both of these cupcakes!
Ingredients:
 - 1 box white cake mix (and required ingredients)
 - 1 box yellow cake mix (and required ingredients)
 - blue food coloring
 - red food coloring
 - can of vanilla or white frosting
 - can of dark chocolate frosting
Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a cupcake pan with baking cups. Get four mixing bowls ready. In one bowl, create the white cake batter from the white cake mix. Pour half the batter into another bowl. Pour about 12 drops of blue food coloring into one of the bowls and mix (add more drops if needed). Pour about 1/3 cup of the blue batter into the baking cups.
