With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would post this recipe from FamilyFun for these vibrantly colorful rainbow cupcakes! Just start with a white cake mix and the recipe below also includes exactly how many drops of food coloring for each color. Layer them in order and bake! The whipped cream is not only tasty, but looks a lot like a cloud!

Rainbow Cupcakes
Instructions:
Prepare your favorite white cake mix, then divide the batter evenly among six small bowls. Following the chart below, dye each bowl of batter a rainbow color.

RAINBOW COLOR DROPS OF FOOD COLORING
Purple 9 red and 6 blue drops
Blue 12 drops
Green 12 drops
Yellow 12 drops
Orange 12 yellow and 4 red drops
Red 18 drops

Line 16 muffin pan wells with baking cups. Evenly distribute the purple batter among the cups, then the blue, and so on, following the order shown. As you go, gently spread each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the color underneath.

Bake the cupcakes according to your recipe directions. Before serving, remove the paper wrapping, and if you like, top each cupcake with a whipped-cream cloud.
