Hello!
My birthday was on 12 March, so I made myself some cupcakes. I shared them with my book arts class, and I tell you something. You get three dozen cupcakes and 28 college kids in the same room for 6 hours, and they get a bit ravenous near the end. lol.

Anyway, all I've got right now is my crappy cell phone camera photos, but I'll update them when my friends get around to sending me the photos. >.<

Like I said, they're your standard Rainbow Cupcakes, but I made a strawberry buttercream frosting and piped it on. This is an ugly one. We ate all the extra ugly ones before anyone else could see them. lol


Batter in my friend's appropriately rainbow bowls.


In the cupcake pan.


Minus frosting + a huge bite. (couldn't resist...)


With frosting. Ignore the shoddy piping job, it was my first one. So I ate it. Tongue
But the icing tasted amazing, really.

Thanks for looking!

can you give me your icing recipe?? I know it's probably strawberries added to buttercream frosting, but i seriously am afraid of anything to do with the kitchen unless i'm given very specific (down to the last detail) instructions!! Tongue

I love your cupcakes. I love to make rainbow ones although it takes forever splitting the colours. How did you make them so bright??

I used this recipe: http://realmomkitchen.blogspot.com/2009/02/strawberry-jam-buttercream.html
It's not mine, but it's amazing. Cheesy

As to the colors, I have no idea how they got so bright. I was completely sure that they wouldn't come out that bright, but I was pleasantly surprised. I just followed the instructions on the back of the box of food coloring.

I'm glad you like them, though!  Wink
