Rainbow Cupcakes

Our Lucy had been requesting a baking session for a while , I promised her that this spring break we will do more baking. Since I am the Queen of " lets make this easy" baking, I grabbed a good old friend from our pantry..cake mix! From a shortcut cookie to loaf breads, the recipes are endless. If you want to have fun in the kitchen with your kids without baking from scratch..this is for you. Quick and easy..right up my alley.

Lucy and me. Seriously kid..stop growing!


1 package of white cake mix  with the needed Ingredients to make the cake
food color

Homemade Icing or store bought ( recipe below)


Make the white cake mix following the package instructions. Line your pans with cupcake liners.
Divide the batter into equal parts, We decided on four different colors. You can make more colors if you want or just stick to 3.. totally up to you. Whatever hits your fancy. We used gel food coloring..

Mix in your food color into your batter, about 2-3 drops on each bowl. Make sure you use 4 different stirrers. They loved the mixing part...

How cute is she ? Lily who refuses to help without her apron. She loves everything purple.

And I love the ohhh's and ahhh's ... who knew mixing the batter can be so mesmerizing for kids..
While the kids are completely in awe with the mixture, Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

How colorful are they!!

I then carefully , spooned each color of the batter into the lined cupcake baking pans. I used 4 different scooper (or spoons). I really wanted to make sure I don't mess up the colors.

You can just make 3 layers of color..

or four...

Just do not overfill each cup.

Transfer to a cooling rack. Let it cool completely.

Very cute and easy to make with your kiddos. Sometimes we just have to let go of the mess so we can enjoy these little moments with our kids.
Whip up some frosting too!
