Easy Rainbow Cupcakes!

This is actually an idea I stole from another sister, Carol, but we used it for my daughters birthday and it turned out great! I like low-key birthday parties, so this was the opening activity -
Rainbow Cupcakes.
It's easy. 
  • First, mix up a white cake mix.
  • Second, separate it into smaller bowls and use food color to color the batter in each bowl. We used red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
  • Third, put cupcake liners in the pan and let the kids spoon in whatever colors they want! Just make sure you stop them when it gets 2/3 full.
  • Fourth, bake them!
We played games while they baked. Twenty minutes after putting them in we stacked them up, stuck candles in them, and sang "Happy Birthday!" They were so cute I didn't even bother icing them.

The kids loved it, it was easy, and it was way cheap! One note though, it only made 16 cupcakes instead of the usual 24. So go have fun; don't wait for a birthday!

By the way, my daughter's most played with present so far: the two frogs her cousin brought over.

  1. I decided to make colorful cupcakes for refreshments for family home evening last night. They went over really well. I took some to seminary this morning and we ate cupcakes while talking about the different challenges that people have in life - no 2 lives have the same set of trials. Thanks, Nancy!
