It’s Sunday and it’s raining outside so I thought I would share a foodie recipe with Cake Cetera readers. After successful baking with Amelia last week I couldn’t wait to get her helping out again. I have seen loads of rainbow cupcakes and honestly…I think they can look quite ugly. Sometimes the colours blur and end up a bit of a mess but thought we best give them ago and make them as pretty as can be.
As always whenever baking I use my trusty vanilla cupcake recipe. Amelia helped lots with stirring, I think baking could be her new favourite thing. Here is the cupcake recipe, I can highly recommend using it:
Once you’ve made your basic cake mix your going to want to separate it into as many bowls depending on how many different colours you want for your rainbow cupcakes. I used; green, purple, blue, yellow and pink.
Something I would suggest is using a food colouring gel as the liquid colouring can give an unpleasant taste when a lot is used but with the gel you need such a small amount to get a great colour.
Now its just as simple as putting it in the cases in varying orders, layers and patterns.
While they were cooling I whipped up a simple vanilla frosting recipe. I love how thick this frosting comes out and it tastes amazing. To keep with the colourful theme I used some multicoloured confetti sprinkles.
Considering I wasn’t the biggest fan of coloured cake and the thought of eating green cake kinda grossed me out I am now converted. They look really nice and these ones actually looked quite pretty with the white frosting on top. Will definitely be baking some more rainbow cupcakes soon.
