Rainbow Cupcakes

After reading about rainbows, we made our rainbow cupcakes again this year.  The Littles think these are so much fun!


1 yellow cake mix prepared according to box directions

food coloring:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple


1.  After preparing cake mix according to directions on box, evenly divide the batter into six bowls - one bowl per color.  Mix in one color per bowl.  

I like to use Wilton brand food coloring (which is a gel).  

A toothpick dipped into the color and swirled into the batter is plenty.

2.  Fill each cupcake liner with 1 tsp of each color batter in this order:  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, & purple.  DO NOT SWIRL.  Just layer.

3.  Bake cupcakes according to directions on back of box.  Cool.  Frost and decorate.
