Rainbow Cupcakes

Rainbow Cupcakes

White Cake Mix (as prepared)

Food Coloring

Prepare cake mix as box directs.  Select rainbow colors.  (We used 8 colors.)  Divide batter evenly in small bowls for each color.  Use food coloring to mix colors to your preference.  The brighter the colors the prettier your cupcakes will be.

(Tip-If you hate trying to mix the perfect purple grab a box of new “Neon” food coloring.)

Line cupcake pans with paper liners.  Using a standard spoon scoop 1/2 a spoonful of each color layer into cups.  We started with red and ended with purple.  The red layer is the hardest.  You will probably use too much batter on the first try.  It will be okay just use less on a different color.  spoon each layer directly on top of the other.  If the batter doesn’t touch the sides of the cups don’t worry. Continue with each layer until cups are 2/3s full and all colors are used.

Take the tray and gently tap the sides so the batter settles into the cups.  Bake as directed.

Frost and serve.

The best part about these cupcakes was comparing them to each other after taking a bite.  We all sat around showing off the centers of our cupcakes.  It was fun to see the different patterns and waves.
