We looked at a few ideas and she really liked these rainbow cupcakes I showed her so I took the burden from her and eagerly accepted the first order for cupcakes! I figured this would be an easy one to start with since there was no filling, very little decoration needed on top, just white frosting and I wanted to add a little colored sugar.
Let me tell you... Rainbow Cupcakes is NOT a walk in the park. They are not difficult, just Time consuming. I mixed up a white batter, and then separated into 4 bowls. Tinted with good vibrant coloring til I was happy with the colors then the fun began! Spooning a small amount into each cup.. no problem. Smoothing it to the edges so it doesn't mix & marble with the color beneath - there is a trick to that! LUCKILY I had read about this trick and knew what to do. Needless to say, I did ONE dozen at a time, and it took 50 minutes from mixing batter to putting ONE tray in the oven. Amazing! Would I do it again? YOU BET! They turned out SUPER... I loved them, she loved them, her little girl loved them, even her hubby loved them and wants some for HIS birthday! YAY!!! Here are a few pics...
After that we have a couple pictures of them frosted and ready to go. I made 2 dozen and one dozen I sprinkled with blue sugar on top of the frosting, and the other was a light green. Light green didn't show up as well, so I think it either needed more, or needed to be blue. But Just the same it added a little sparkle to them.
Time to box them up and roll 'em out!
