You can use any regular plain vanilla or basic white cake mix for these rainbow cupcakes. Make the cake batter according to your recipe’s instructions. Divide the batter into four equal portions, or however many colours you are going to be using. We used four colours so we divided our batter into four portions. Your portions do not have to be exactly equal for these rainbow cupcakes to work. Just go by sight and make them approximately the same.
Next, add a few drops of food colouring to each portion, and mix!
Don’t they look great! Make sure you’ve mixed the colour in thoroughly, with no white cake batter showing.
Prepare a muffin tray by lining it with cupcake cases. Add a spoonful of each colour into each cupcake case. A little tip: to easily remove the batter from the spoon, use two spoons. Use the second spoon to scrape the batter off the first spoon as shown below.
This is how they should look before they go into the oven.
Bake the cupcakes according to your recipe’s instructions and this is what you’ll end up with. So beautiful!
What do they look like inside? Take a look……
