You are going to start by making a basic batch of white cupcakes. I used this gluten-free recipe by Barefeet In the Kitchen (I used All-Purpose GF Flour instead and used egg-replacer and rice milk. And I only baked them for 8-10 minutes since I was doing cupcakes).  It really is a great recipe!

Divide the batter into three bowls. Put 1tsp of blue food coloring in one, 1 tsp of red coloring in the second and leave the third plain.

Then using a piping bag, fill in the cupcake tins by layering the different batters.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until you can pull a toothpick out clean.

Cool and then frost!

I made a basic buttercream frosting using 1 cup of room temperature butter, 4 cups of powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp of milk. You can alway add a little more milk or more powdered sugar to get your desired consistency.

Then just like the batter, divid into three bowls and color with red, white and blue. I put the frosting in piping bags to create the swirls.

And in case you want the cupcake toppers here is the FREE PRINTABLE!
