1  COOKING / Dessert / Rainbow Cupcakes! on: March 01, 2009 06:18:37 PM
Hey, guys!
Rainbows are pretty. And cupcakes are delicious.
So let's make something pretty delicious.

And here it is: The Rainbow cupcake!

It's actually REALLY easy to make. All you need is white cak mix, food coloring, 6 bowls and spoons, and the proper baking tools needed for making cupcakes. Follow the cake recipie on the box. Divide the batter into 6 parts, and make each portion of the batter a different color. Add a spoonful of each color into the baking tray, and remember not to mix the colors!!! Just let them settle on top of each other. Bake as the box directs and then when they're done, let them cool.

The colors wont really mix (I did get green bubbles coming through the red, but it didn't affect the inside of the cupcake overall).
Decorate them how you want to and enjoy!!!

They don't have to be just rainbows either. Make them zebra by dyeing half the batter black, or make tiger cupcakes by making the cake mix half black and half orange. The color options are endless!

And just because they look so rainbowtastic on the inside...
the cupcake tastes 39469071409670956742340 times better!

Enjoy!!!  Grin

note: I took the pics pre-decorated! So no worries, there was icing on them, but to show you guys, I kept them icingless!
