After seeing all these rainbow-desserts, I decided I needed to make one too. I've been into cupcakes lately, so decided rainbow cupcakes were the way to go.
I whipped up a yummy looking recipe for a vanilla bean cake I found at http://coconutlime.blogspot.com/
, split the batter into 4 bowls, and added a food coloring to each! I spooned one heaping tablespoon of each color into each cupcake liner. The batter is somewhat thick so it ended up being more like blobs of color rather than layers. But I really like the blobby-ness! A little wild and disorganized. I just whipped up a vanilla buttercream frosting for the finishing touches. They are delicious!!! Yum yum.

Note: Both recipes call for vanilla paste, which I don't have. So I used vanilla extract instead.
