it is easy!
but time consuming…halfway through i thought "why did i decide to do this?"
they are so pretty it is worth the time.
i saw these made somewhere…and i can't recall who made them…so smile if it was you…you are smart!
i used white cake mix made according to the box.
(i was making these for school treats too so i used three boxes of cake mix…)
then split the batter into 6 bowls.
then added icing colors to each bowl seperately.
you could buy them here….or walmart or hobby lobby or michaels.
gel colors are different than the little droppers…much deeper and a more true color is achieved.
next i lined my cupcake pan with paper liners….(wishing i had these…)
i used my small scooper to add batter to each cup.
i started with purple and did less than a scoop in each one…then i did the same with blue…then green
and so on.
it used up all the batter and it worked doing it that way.
i wasn't concerned about it being centered or perfect…just did it in order and figured it would work
out to look like a rainbow or at least like tie dye.
they took 15 minutes in my oven.
frosting recipe is in the sidebar…and so is the rainbow cake. :)
