Rainbow Cupcakes

Mmm... Don't those cupcakes look so cute, springy and yummy?! The girls and I made rainbow cupcakes today. I got the idea from Family Fun magazine, although it isn't the same as their rainbow cupcakes they had in their latest issue, but it works just the same.

First you make a white cake mix, then divide it out into however many colors you want. I let the girls choose two colors each. Sierra chose purple and pink (surprise, surprise), and Maddie chose orange and green (orange is Maddie's fav).

Then we dished out the batter into the cupcake liners and popped them into the oven.

It sure is cute seeing cupcake pans full of rainbow cupcakes.

Of course we frosted them the same colors. They would be cute with white frosting too, but what is the fun is that?

This was a fun activity and very tasty too! :)

One of the other leaders I serve in Young Womens with did the rainbow cupcakes in the colors for the Young Women Values for our New Beginnings activity (the one I had to make those invites for) They turned out really cool. You're a fun mom to do these fun activities with the girls. I can't believe how big they're getting.
