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.

Links to the recipes:

Vanilla Bean Layer Cake: http://coconutlime.blogspot.com/2008/04/vanilla-bean-layer-cake.html
Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting: http://www.cupcakeproject.com/2008/03/vanilla-bean-buttercream-frosting.html

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

These look delicious! Great job....I love how the colors came out.  My Grandma used to make rainbow cupcakes all time time....she called them Regenbogen-Kekse.....which I'm pretty sure translates to rainbow biscuits....I wish I spoke German so I could be sure. Tongue   Thanks for reminding me about a great childhood memory. Cheesy
