so, my son's birthday is coming up. and rather than spend a ton of money on store-made cake, i decided to take a stab at rainbow cupcakes. but, i didn't want to wait til then to do it because i didn't know if i had enough mojo in the baking skills to pull it off.
these are my dry run. they turned out pretty well. the pics make the colors look a little odd, but in person they are neon. i just used the colors straight from the neon food colors box. i didn't feel like going all out and mixing every color in the rainbow. i put canned white frosting on there (because i'm lazy today, and this is just an experiment.) its supposed to look like white clouds, and there's sparkle sugar on top to make it even more happy. ironically, its raining today. and i made way too many of these... soooo... the neighbors will all be getting a rainy day treat. lol
the colors are neon purple, green, hot pink, and blue.
kinda looks like clouds, huh? lol
the coolest part, i think, was the awesome tye-dyed looking cupcake paper. normally i'm sad when the cupcake was gone, but at least with these the paper is happy-looking too. lol
they tasted really good. i don't know why, but i for some reason thought they wouldn't taste right with the color in them. this is not how i will do it for my son's b-day. this is a little too girly. he loves go diego, go. so, am going to color the cupcakes yellow, blue, and orange. and the icing will be one of those colors with diego icing decorations and matching sprinkles.
so, thanks for looking, and have a great afternoon/evening!
