I made Rainbow Cupcakes for Jenny’s 1st birthday party and they were so tasty, easy and delicious to make!
To make them all you need is a box of white or vanilla cake mix (I used vanilla), all the things that are called for on the cake mix box (eggs, water, oil), food coloring, cupcake liners and muffin tins.
First, place cupcake liners in the muffin tins. With one box of mix, you can make approximately 24 cupcakes.
Then mix up the cake batter per the instructions on the box.
Divide the batter into six bowls as evenly as possible.
Use food coloring to color each bowl of batter into a separate color of the rainbow.
Remember ROY-G-BIV from science class?
Purple (I combined indigo and violet)
Use can use regular food coloring or gel food coloring that is used to tint icing for cake decorating. I used the Wilton gel colors because I think they do give a bolder color.
After you have made all of your rainbow colors, it’s time to start filling the cupcake liners.
Place a small dab (about 1 tbsp.) of each color of batter in the cupcake liners.
I started with red, filled all the liners with that color, then moved onto orange, placing a spoonful of it in each cupcake liner, and then moved on to each color in ROY-G-BIV order.
Bake according to the box directions, cool and decorate.
And then wow your kids and maybe even some party guests with your creative cooking skills!
