Life is too short not to use food coloring in cake batter. I'd seen these crazy kaleidoscope cupcake ideas floating around online and wanted to give it a try. It took a bit longer than making normal cupcakes, but it was worth it!

Here are the supplies you need. Make sure to get primary colors AND new the new neons that McCormick Spices has out now.


You'll make the white cake batter and then sort it into bowls. Add the color to the shade you want.


Drizzle the batter in alternating colors.






What made my whole day is when my little nieces, Bella and Sarah (4 & 9), followed me around, nudging and whispering to each other "YOU ask her! No, YOU ask her!!"

Finally Bella says shyly, "Auntie Kathy, can we have another cupcake?" I giggled and said YES, help yourself!! I wish I had a picture of the look on their faces as they ate them, they practically oohed and ahhed in between each bite.

The bottom picture is from the cupcakes my dad ate. He said, "Wow, even the paper looks like tie-dye!"

SCORE!
Peace, love, and glitter!
Kathy :-)
