After making Tie Dye Cookies with K a while ago, I've been wanting to make Tie Dye Cupcakes (also known as Rainbow Cupcakes) since we had so much fun with the cookies.
There's nothing like eating strangely colored food to make you feel like a kid again :) Don't worry, my kids enjoyed them too... Mix up some white cake batter whether from a box or from scratch. Preheat your oven, and line your cupcake pan.
Divide the batter into however many bowls you want for various colors. Add food coloring and stir.
Spoon globs of batter into each cupcake liner, putting different colors in randomly. Bake for the appropriate amount of time...probably between 20-30 minutes and cry because your favorite timer is dying :(
Entertain the kids while they bake...they're still adjusting to their new kitchen limitations because I just couldn't take C dumping out my lower cupboards several times a day anymore. Pull out your cupcakes and let them cool. Frost them if you want, but I love cupcakes plain, and it's so much fun to see all the colors. These would be great for parties or just a fun activity with the kids.
Thank you Jamie @ Trendy Treehouse for the inspiration!
For even more fun, make Tie Dye Cupcakes in a Cone!
