How to make Rainbow Cupcakes
Taste the Rainbow
When I first saw these Rainbow Cupcakes I fell in love. Not only do I love Cupcakes, but I am a Big Fan of Rainbows too. Who would have thought some great planning and some Food Coloring could make such a Fun Treat. If you have never made Rainbow Cupcakes I am going to share with you how you can make some here. It is not as hard as it looks and the end result is Amazing and they will Brighten any Day !!

What you will Need to create your Rainbow Cupcakes
~White Cake Mix
~1 Cup of Sour Cream
~1/2 Cup of Milk
~1/3 Cup of Vegetable Oil
~Wilton Food Coloring Gel in a Rainbow of Colors - 5-6 Colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple)
Mix up all your Ingredients (Cake Mix, Eggs, Sour Cream, Milk and Vegetable Oil) and Beat well.
Next you want to split your Cake Mix into separate Bowls depending on how many colors you will be using. Mix in one color to each of the bowl until you get your desired colors. Line your Cupcake Pan with Liners. Next you will layer each color one at a time into the Cupcake Liners. Start with Purple and layer up to Red. You can reverse the colors - swirl them in, but the layered way will give you what you see in the photo.
Bake as Directed ~ Let Cool ~ Frost and Decorate ~ Pour a Glass of Cold Milk ~ Eat
Cupcake in the photo used only 5 Colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue)
NOTE: Using the Wilton Food Coloring Gel works best for the Bright Colors. I made a Cake using regular Food Coloring and even though it was pretty the colors were not at all as vibrant as the Rainbow Cupcake you see Pictured by OurBestBites.

My Rainbow Cake
See the Difference in Colors
The photo you see to your right is the inside of my Rainbow Cake. This cake was actually a Rabbit Cake my son and I made for Easter. It was a last minute thing we decided to do and I let him have reign on mixing up the colors, but we used regular Liquid Food Coloring to do it and you can see how it is not as brilliant as the Cupcakes above. We also prepared our Cake Mix according to the Box and not the way explained above. In addition to that it was made in a Egg Shaped Pan so it was much harder to layer.
We had fun making it and I think it was still fun, but my point is to show you the color difference using Liquid Food Coloring vs. The Wilton's Gel Food Coloring. OH and it was YUMMY too !!!
