- 4 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- Food coloring (burgundy, maroon, ivory, cream, peach)

Whisk sugar and milk in a medium bowl until smooth. Divide icing among 5 bowls to tint separately. Stir in food coloring a bit at a time until desired color is reached. Use immediately. For gold cupcakes, frost with ivory icing; when dry, dust with luster dust.
