Ingredients

-White cake mix (we used an 18-1/4-ounce box)

-Food coloring (red, blue, green, and yellow)

-Baking cups

-Whipped cream (optional)

 

Instructions

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.

 

RAINBOW COLOR             DROPS OF FOOD COLORING

Purple             9 red and 6 blue drops

Blue             12 drops

Green             12 drops

Yellow             12 drops

Orange             12 yellow and 4 red drops

Red             18 drops

 

 

Line 16 muffin pan wells with baking cups. 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.

 

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.
