There’s something about crazy colorful desserts that is a big hit at my house…remember those Kool Aid cookies I made recently? Well let me tell you-these rainbow cupcakes hit it out of the park! Even my hubby loved them and may or may not have snuck some into his lunch to take to work today! (He’s not a huge sweets guy.)
They are soooo easy to make too. All I did was make a normal box of white cake mix and divide into six bowls. I used gel food coloring to dye the batter without affecting the taste.
Once I had all my colored batters (is that a real word?) ready I started adding them to the muffin pan. I started with purple and worked my way backwards through the rainbow adding a spoonful of batter in each color. (Forgive the dark kitchen pics!)
Once they cooked and cooled I used Vanilla Cool Whip frosting (I found it in the freezer section-so light and tasty!) but you could use any frosting you like…and topped it with rainbow sprinkles.
Easy and delicious and cute as a bonus!! I think they are perfect for St. Paddy’s Day, Springtime, Easter, or even just for a birthday party! When would you make them?
Thanks for stopping by!
