How to make Rainbow Cupcakes
Have you seen these cupcakes I posted on Facebook recently? I know I promised to post the how-to last week but…. been too busy.
This has been a cupcake week for me.. Kids party cupcakes, Bat-Mitzvah cupcake favors, Anniversary cupcake favors and painted princess cupcakes.
Anyway, don’t these look gorgeous?
Here’s how I make my rainbow cupcakes.
Prepare one batch of your favorite vanilla cupcakes.
Here I’m using my – one bowl cupcake recipe – Honestly can’t get any easier than that!
Divide the batter into six bowl approximately.
Now add your choice of coloring.
I am using a mix of Wilton and Ameri-color.
Please refer to my post on – how to make a rainbow cake if you want to use super-market brand food colors or natural food coloring options. I have spoken about it in detail in that post.
Prepare your baking pan with cupcake liners.
Start adding your colors. Red,orange, yellow, blue, green, violet.
- Every time you add a color – lift your baking pan and tap it down, ones or twice lightly to spread the colors. Move on to the next color and do the same.
- When you add the next color – place it in the middle of the previous colored batter. So when you tap it – it flows over the previous batter forming a layer.
Here’s the red orange and yellow.
And last violet/purple.
Tap one last time and bake in a preheated oven at 170C/340 F for about 20 to 22 minutes.
When cooled, decorate as desired. I decorated mine with the rainbow icing.
I have made a post on how to make two tone icing. Do exactly the same but instead of two colors add six colors.
Here’s a close look at the inside on one cupcake.
Simple, pretty and always kid’s favorite. I do hope you find this post helpful.
