To make cream cheese frosting, beat softened cream cheese and butter on low for 2-3 minutes. Add in vanilla and slowly add in powdered sugar. If frosting is too thick add a little milk. If frosting is too thin add some more powdered sugar. Separate frosting into three bowls. One for red, white and blue. Use the red and blue food dyes to color the frosting to desired colors. Place each of the frosting colors into small piping bags. Cut off a tip about 1 inch up from point. Place a 1M piping tip or large circle tip into a large piping bag. Put the three small red, white and blue filled piping bags into the large piping bag. Make sure the small piping bag tips are at the same level in the large bag so when piped you get an equal amount of each color. Pipe frosting onto cupcakes in circular motion. Top with patriotic sprinkles. Enjoy!
