So upon my research of St. Patrick’s Day, I found this fantastic rainbow cupcake recipe. Why does it have to be for St. Patti’s Day – why not to celebrate spring? Rainbows, spring showers, flowers…it added a smile to my face and though I would share this great idea with you!

INGREDIENTS:

  • White cake mix (from the box…18 ¼ ounce box)
  • Food coloring (red, blue, green and yellow)
  • Baking cups
  • Whipped cream or vanilla frosting


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Prepare your favorite white cake mix, then divide the batter evenly among six small bowls. Following the chart below, dye each bowl of batter a rainbow color.

FOR RAINBOW COLOR = DROPS OF FOOD COLORING:

Purple  =  9 red and 6 blue drops

Blue  =  12 drops

Green  =  12 drops

Yellow  =  2 drops

Orange  =  12 yellow and 4 red drops

Red  =  18 drops

 
2. Line 16 muffin pan wells with baking cups.

3. Evenly distribute the purple batter among the cups, then the blue, and so on, following the order shown. As you go, gently spread each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the color underneath.

4. Bake the cupcakes according to your recipe directions. Before serving, remove the paper wrapping, and if you like, top each cupcake with a whipped-cream cloud of whipped cream or vanilla frosting.
