Cupcake-y Goodness!

They are delicious... and fun to look at! 

Not to mention super easy to make and your kids will love them! 

What am I talking about? 

Rainbow cupcakes! 
A little bit of food dye can turn most food into an adventure!

You need:
A mixer (or a strong arm)
"Pale" cake mix of your choice (I used ButterCreme)
Paper cupcake cups & cupcake pan
Food dye
& frosting!


I could never do what I do without this trust KitchenAid mixer. Very much worth the expense!
(it mixes good home made Mashed Potatoes too :P)

You can use homemade frosting or frosting out of a can that you spread on. I personally prefer this no fuss frosting by Pillsbury. If you frost thick though it will only frost around 18 cupcakes!

After you have mixed your batter in your blender (or by good old arm power), split your batter equally into 3 different bowls or containers....Add food dye {found in your local grocery to your batter} & mix.

Put one color at a time and make different layers for different designs!

Don't forget to grab a taste tester!

Put in the oven & Bake to deliciousness!

When you take them out of the oven let cool for 5 minutes and than use a butter knife to carefully get the cupcakes out of the pan and put them on a plate to cool. Not only will they cool faster but it frees the pan for more cupcakes!

After they cool off {cause no one wants melted frosting} frost to your hearts content! Use a helped or two if you want! This is a great fun project for kids.

Put some on a plate (but hide the rest for you or for later :P) and watch everyone enjoy!
{Look at how pretty-ful they are...Makes you what that frosting in a can huh?}

Look at how awesome the inside looks!
