Go ahead – eat a rainbow

5 09 2011

Friday evening – it might have been just after eleven – I was in the mood to bake something. My mother-in-law would be celebrating her birthday the next day, and I wanted to come up with something special. Something out of the ordinary…

…which is how I ended up making rainbow cupcakes!!! 😀

I’ve always wanted to try it, and though I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, I was determined to be creative. I simply used my regular old cupcake recipe, divided the batter between four bowls, then added food colouring. I then went on to place a spoonful of each colour into the cookie cups: first blue, then yellow, then green, and finally red.

The result?

Well, see for yourselves. All in all, I think it came out pretty awesome! I promise I’ll share the recipe soon.

[My younger sister Addy has already placed an order for her 21st birthday next year. But I think I should try and work on it a bit more – there’s only so much one can do with an oven that doesn’t even heat properly…]

After dividing the batter into 4 bowls, I mixed in the food colouring

Tada! Hmm, nothing like the smell of cupcakes after midnight...

Fresh, colourful and delicious

An explosion of brightness

And the pattern on the cookie cup looks just as nice
