I made these awhile ago. The colors turned out SO vivid. I was dying to make rainbow cupcakes. They look so cool. It is so easy. I used boxed cake mix but make sure you use gel food coloring. I love the way the cupcake wrapper looks too. I used a little bit on water on my finger to spread the colors out when I layered them. My hubby helped out with the spooning and layering.

The ingredients


The colors


The spooning.


Toxic bright cupcake!

does the amount of food coloring you used affect the flavour? (like can you taste the food coloring?)  Also did you need rainbow cupcakes because of that super polyclay ranbow cake?

I started with a little bit and then turned into a mad scientist with it and kept adding more.The only color I didn't like was the yellow. I went for the canary yellow instead of the bright yellow. I took a toothpick and added a little, by the end I had a little spoon I was using. I couldn't taste the food coloring-I got the red dye that has no taste.

Poly rainbow cake? Whaaaa? I must see this.  Cheesy

Best cupcakes ever. The only gel colours I have are black and orange from making hallowe'en cookies. Last time I made cupcakes I did make them green just with regular food colour.

I made these not so long ago also!! I saw the idea on another site for a rainbow cake and decided to make cupcakes instead!

I made them for the people at my bf's job because work gets stressful there!

These were my sunshine-rainbow cupcakes, meant to add sunshine and color to a rough day at work!

(The last says "Kita Cakes" and it was mine  Tongue)

And No, you could not taste the color.

Don't you hate it when people fill up their signature with random junk you could care less about reading but when you see how long it is you figure it has to be important so you keep reading but it's not worth your time and you just wasted a whole minute reading absolutely nothing at all? I do.

Your post inspired my friends and I to bake some of these for my birthday, yesterday. They were so tasty and so bad for us.

Here are all the cupcakes from our first batch iced and sprinkled.


Single, lonely cupcake. Personally, I adore this photo.


Happy birthday to me, cupcake innards and all. <3


We used Betty Crocker coloring gels and weren't impressed.
