Cooking with Kids - Rainbow Cupcakes
Making Rainbow Cupcakes has become a weekly ritual in my house. Posh is getting better at cracking the eggs every time! I'm tempted to do this for her 3rd birthday party next week, she'd be proud to make her very own cake.
We use the boxed white cake mix and I buy them during the 10 for $10 sale at Smiths Grocery store. We also stock up on white frosting, also fun to dye!
Split the white cake mix into as many bowls as you want colors, we usually do 6 for Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Follow the instructions on your dye bottles as to how to achieve these colors.
The muffin tins fill up FAST with the mix so using a small spoon begin to layer in your colors. By the time the twins Pixie and Princess have made their cupcakes into perfect rainbows their little sister is desperate to get her turn in. Posh likes to go for the tie dye look, my favorite as well!
These can easily be made for Easter in pastels, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas, any holiday really! Don't limit yourself to rainbows, have FUN!
