so, my son's birthday is coming up. and rather than spend a ton of money on store-made cake, i decided to take a stab at rainbow cupcakes. but, i didn't want to wait til then to do it because i didn't know if i had enough mojo in the baking skills to pull it off.

these are my dry run. they turned out pretty well. the pics make the colors look a little odd, but in person they are neon. i just used the colors straight from the neon food colors box. i didn't feel like going all out and mixing every color in the rainbow. i put canned white frosting on there (because i'm lazy today, and this is just an experiment.) its supposed to look like white clouds, and there's sparkle sugar on top to make it even more happy. ironically, its raining today. and i made way too many of these... soooo... the neighbors will all be getting a rainy day treat. lol

the colors are neon purple, green, hot pink, and blue.

kinda looks like clouds, huh? lol

the coolest part, i think, was the awesome tye-dyed looking cupcake paper. normally i'm sad when the cupcake was gone, but at least with these the paper is happy-looking too. lol

they tasted really good. i don't know why, but i for some reason thought they wouldn't taste right with the color in them. this is not how i will do it for my son's b-day. this is a little too girly. he loves go diego, go. so, am going to color the cupcakes yellow, blue, and orange. and the icing will be one of those colors with diego icing decorations and matching sprinkles.

so, thanks for looking, and have a great afternoon/evening! Smiley

thank you guys! believe me, they were yummy... not to toot my own horn or anything. lol... but, seriously... i made like 20 of them and i had to give most of them away as soon as they were cooled and frosted to remove temptation from my sight. luckily i live in an apartment complex, so i just went knocking on doors and handing out deliciousness.

I love these cupcakes!  I have never even heard of doing rainbow cupcakes.  What a great idea.  I will have to try this sometime.  The white "cloud" frosting with sparkly sprinkles is also just too cute.

Shhh... don't tell any of the other rainbow cupcake bakers, but I love yours best.  Wink  They're so bright and vivid, and they remind me of tie-dye!
