Rainbow cake is all the rage these days so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon.
Lora made a cupcake version the other night and I was inspired to copy them for Bonnie's birthday lunch tomorrow! They're fun and playful, everything a birthday should be, so I think they're perfect!
And so easy! I just made my basic vanilla cupcake recipe and split the batter into 5 small bowls. I tried to make them as even as possible, but I'm sure they were a little off. Good news is that with this recipe, a little off is just right :)
Once I had my batter divided, I added food coloring to each bowl, and ended up with blue, green, pink, orange, and yellow!
I lined my cupcake tins and put a heaping tablespoon of the blue batter in first. Then I added a spoonful of pink, then yellow, green, and orange.
They look so cool! But I think they look more like tie dye, so that's what I'm calling them :)
Now all they need is icing and some sprinkles and they're ready to go!
Update: here's the finished product! :)
