Colorful swirled cupcakes

I like to make them fun and interesting, and one of my favorite ways to do that is with colorful, swirled icing.

"It's a blessing in our culture," said Fleming, who's been assisting Native American students since 1968. Fleming, who tutors and advises every Native American student in the school district, said there were 75 graduates in 2010, but the 12th-grade class was smaller this year.
