Coffee Break with Liz and Kate » Kate's Escapades, writing essays about short stories, » gravity mobile spy login

This weekend I attempted to make rainbow cupcakes for my sister-in-law’s birthday. You’ll notice the word “attempted”, which in itself implies that I was not successful. I followed the instructions to a “T”, but somewhere between the directions and the end result, my rainbow layers turned into random tie dye designs. I’ll admit that the Martha Stewart in me was tempted to just run the recipe as if I had intended for them to be Tie Dye Cupcakes all along. However, the real mom part of me knows that more often than not, the actual end product bears little resemblance to the pretty picture in the cookbook.  And guess what? I like the tie dye version better, so there Martha!

So here is my unintentional recipe for

Tie Dye Cupcakes


1 white or yellow cake mix

1 tub of vanilla or cream cheese frosting

Neon Food Coloring



Step 1:

Prepare cake mix according to directions on package and divide batter into 5 bowls

Step 2:

Add Neon food coloring to bowls of batter until it reaches desired color (Brighter is better)



Step 3:

Add layers of batter by the spoonful into the cupcake liners until 2/3 full (Be creative)





Step 4:

Add neon food coloring to frosting and frost cupcakes. Add sprinkles for an extra festive touch

This is a fun and easy treat to make with your kids.


Enjoy your Coffee Break!
