Last week the kids and I made rainbow cupcakes.
Just a white cake mix, prepared as directed on the box and divided into six bowls with added food coloring.
Then layer the colors in the cupcake liners...easy peasy.
It's a happy mess and you can't NOT be happy eating one. They are just too fun!
Top with whipped cream or my favorite cream cheese frosting:
2 (8 oz) blocks of cream cheese, softened
1 c. butter (2 sticks), softened
1 pound confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, mix cream cheese and butter until well blended.
Add confectioners' sugar and vanilla and mix until combined.
Pipe or spread on cupcakes/cake.
Refrigerate or freeze any remaining frosting.
I've also done this in a cake form, instead of cupcakes. Both are fun and happy.
I love rainbows...I even have a Rainbow Pinterest board. Check it out here.
Have a beautiful day!
