Today is the first day of Spring, in celebration of the Sun passing over the Earth’s equator, we made Rainbow Cupcakes. Using just a regular box of yellow cake mix and a box of food coloring we were able to turn a batch of cupcakes into a bright and colorful afternoon snack.
After making your cake mix according to the package directions separate the batter equally into 5 small bowls, then proceed with the following chart to make each color.
To make each color you will need:
Purple: 9 red drops, 6 blue drops
Blue: 12 blue drops
Green: 12 green drops
Yellow: 12 yellow drops
Red: 18 red
After you have made each color divide the batter equally into muffin pans. You will probably get one or two less cupcakes than your package says you will get. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes and then…
taste a rainbow (with your favorite icing of course).
