Rainbow Cupcakes


I couldn’t be bothered with icing, but white piped would look really cute as clouds 😀

recipe is the BEST ever cupcake recipe, from nigella’s domestic goddess :>

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C

    Round up your ingredients

    Beat the sugar and butter together, until fluffy and light coloured

  2. Beat in the eggs one at a time, adding a little flour each time, until you’ve added it all.

  3. Ad the vanilla essence, mix

    one tbsp milk, mix

    one tbsp milk, mix

    one tbsp milk, mix

  4. Divide between 6 bowls

    Bowl 1- Add half a cap full of red colouring

    Bowl 2- Add half a cap full of red and half a cap full of yellow

    Bowl 3- Half a cap of yellow

    Bowl 4- Half a cap full of green

    Bowl 5- Half a cap full of Blue

    Bowl 6- Half a cap full of Blue, half a cap full of Red.

    Obviously, mix after you’ve added the colourings

  5. Divide the purple bowl between the 12 cases. smooth to form bottom layer.

    Repeat with the other bowls in this order:
    Blue
    Green
    Yellow
    Orange
    Red

    Put in the oven for 15-20 mins

    skewer to find out if it’s ready, if it come out gunky, put it back in the oven! if clean, then pop on a cooling rack

  6. Decorate!!!

    go crazy!

NOTE:  Use a box of White cake mix instead of making the cake from scratch.  Then start from step 4.  Homemade is always tastier, but the reality is, not everyone is a baker, has all the ingredients, or prefers the convenience of just having to add oil and egg to a prepackaged mix.

I didn’t follow the colour order as per the recipe.  I just put whatever colour The Boy wanted to put next.  Although, when I do it again, I won’t finish with green on top.  Got feedback that it looked like my cupcakes had moldy fungus!  LOL
