Taste the Rainbow...Rainbow Cupcakes!
So many folks have asked how these were made...so let me share with y'all how I did it!
In one big bowl make the batter for your fav. chocolate cake. I made devil's food...for my father in law. (if you don't love chocolate...then you can go ahead & make 2 batches of white cake...it's worth doing 2 because there will be plenty to share!)
In another big bowl, make the batter for your fav. white cake. I'm not persnickety on whether or not you use grandma's secret recipe...or make it straight from the box. Either way will give you beautiful results...because these are all about the color!
Separate your white cake into 5 or 6 equal parts & color with food coloring as desired. I love my colors to be super bright when doing this in combination with the chocolate cake. (if you're doing just the white cake...pastel colors look so lovely!)
First spoon some choc. cake batter into the paper lined cupcake tin...filling just less than halfway.
Then start layering your colors in the middle of that one spoon full of color at a time & try to keep it centered to get a good rainbow effect at the end. Just an FYI...this is the color order I did with 5 colors: green, blue, purple, pink/red, yellow.
Bake them according to the directions on your recipe until a toothpick stuck inside comes out clean.
Voila! You've made edible art! Frost & decorate as desired!
