1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 cup milk

In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Then stir in the vanilla.

Combine flour and baking powder, add to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Finally stir in the milk and blue food coloring until batter is smooth.

Pour or spoon batter into the muffin pans.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cupcakes are done when a toothpick is inserted and it comes out clean.
