Cherry Icee Cupcakes (Whole Wheat)

Today we have Whole Wheat Cherry Icee Cupcakes, I follow a wonderful blog 
 Crazy for Crust  and the desserts are amazing.  Last week she made Icee Cupcakes which were beautiful and really looked like Icee's on top of a cupcake.  So my kiddies wanted to make them, and we did, and they came out really good, and I must say that the frosting tastes just like a cherry Icee its amazing!  These could be a wonderful treat for a pool party, park play date, any outside event!
