Over the rainbow cupcakes

 
We’ve all had green-colored bread, green-colored cookies and an assortment of candies wrapped in emerald foil. This recipe from Shari Lott of spearmintbaby.com redefines the St. Patrick’s Day color wheel. What will you find at the end of your rainbow?


Ingredients:

 

Box of white cake mix and the called-for ingredients (A mix that uses egg whites and oil instead of butter will make your colors look brighter)

Assorted pack of food dye (I used McCormick’s Neon! Pack and mixed pink with yellow to get an orange)

Icing (Make your own or use canned)

 

Directions:

 

1. Mix up the cake mix per the directions on the box.

 

2. Divide the batter into bowls. Use one bowl for each color (think red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet).

 

3. Add your food coloring until you get the desired colors.

 

4. Line a muffin pan with cupcake wrappers. I like using silver or white wrappers.

 

5. Use a fork or spoon to drizzle each color of batter on top of the next. Start with purple, then blue, then green, then yellow, then orange, then red. Be careful not to mix the colors.

 

6. Bake the cupcakes as directed on the cake mix box.

 

7. Cool and frost as you like. I prefer a white, whipped-cream icing, but anything will work.
