They are fun, funky, and very easy to make! A great project to do with kids!
- 19 1⁄2 ounces white cake mix
- 3 eggs
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup water
- 6 ounces food coloring (Gel food coloring is best, Betty Crocker offers traditional colors as well as neon colors)
- 8 ounces cream cheese frosting
1- Mix the cake batter according to package directions. Evenly divide prepared batter into several different bowls.
2- The amount of bowls will depend on the amount of colors you want for your cupcakes.Add a generous amount of gel food coloring to each bowl until you have a vibrant batter.
3- I usually mix 7 bowls – red, orange,pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
4- Line your muffin tin with paper cups and then begin spooning the colored batter into the cups.
5- Add batter color by color, one tablespoon of red in each of the cups, then added a tablespoon of orange on top of the red, and so on until all colors were used. The colors will not “leak”.
6- Fill the cups approximately 2/3 full of batter.Bake as directed on the box.
7- Allow the cupcakes to cool completely,and frost to your liking.
8- I used whipped cream cheese frosting to give the cupcakes a “cloud” effect.
