Rainbow Cupcakes to dye for

Happy Easter!

And Thank You Clarissa for introducing me to these adorable cupcakes :)

If you're not a Skittles fan, don't worry.....you can still Taste the Rainbow!

Rainbow Cupcakes
Printable Version

White cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
Red, Blue, Green and Yellow food coloring
Favorite white icing

Preheat the oven according to box instructions. Prepare 16 muffin cups with cupcake liners.

Mix the cake mix according to box instructions and evenly divide the batter between 6 small bowls. Color the 6 bowls as follows:

Purple - 9 drops of red and 6 drops of blue
Blue - 12 drops of blue
Green - 12 drops of green
Yellow - 12 drops of yellow
Orange - 12 drops of yellow and 4 drops of red
Red - 18 drops of red

Combine well

Keeping the colors in the same order as listed above, divide each color between the muffin cups, starting with purple, then blue, then green....etc etc

Until you have finished with red.

Bake according to the instructions on the box.

Allow to cool completely and then frost with some white icing....making a cloud on top of your rainbow. (awwww)

Take a bite and experience the rainbow inside

Funny thing...the only reason I took the time to make these is because a while ago I bought the cutest little Easter cupcake liners and I needed to use them, right?

The sad thing is.....once baked, the liners don't look so cute anymore.

It's a good thing the cupcakes are so fun to make.

One more thing....I used the recipe listed on Familyfun.go.com


  1. So fun! I have a soft spot for anything tie-dye ;). I have to try this one day.

  2. I've seen the rainbow cakes and love the idea of making them as cupcakes. Very cute, even if the adorable cupcake liners don't show.

  3. Loving all those rainbow colors!
