Recipe (added after post)
- 1 Box of Pillsbury Yellow cake mix
- red, orange, yellow, green, and blue food coloring
Directions. Make cake as directed on box. In 5 bowls evenly separate the batter. Mix red food coloring in one bowl of cake mix until you get the desired color. Do this for the next 4 colors. Start with the red for the bottom layer and fill each muffin tin. I used about 2 tablespoons of batter for each color. Repeat with other colors until cupcakes are filled.
These were so fun to make but they dirtied up a lot of dishes! I used a box of Pillsbury yellow cake mix, and some red, orange, yellow, green, and blue Wilton food coloring. I took a cake decorating class last Spring so I have a lot of cake decorating tools. Then, I took six bowls and divided out the cake mix and put the different food colorings in them, and mixed them up until they were the color that I wanted. After that, all you have to do is make sure the different colors have an even layer in the cupcake tins and they come out looking like this.
I’ve noticed a lot of red velvet cupcakes on different websites lately. I’m like, what is the big deal with red velvet? All you do is make the cake batter red anyways. I kind of got this idea, because I had seen the neatest looking cake made with rainbow colored cake layers and thought it would be fun to make a rainbow layered cupcake. Since cupcakes seem to be so popular. Take that red velvet!
