    PSU Lioness's Note:

    We made these for my 6 year-old's "half-birthday" party at school. The concept is really easy but they are time consuming (the reason for the large amount of steps listed include the amounts of food coloring needed to dye the batter). The end result was worth it after the kids saw these and thought they were awesome. I didn't have the heart to tell them they were eating plain old vanilla cake with plain old vanilla frosting. They'll be perfect for your little hippie, too!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (18 ounce) box white cake mix
    • red food coloring
    • blue food coloring
    • green food coloring
    • yellow food coloring
    • 1 (16 ounce) can vanilla frosting
    • rainbow candy sprinkles


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven according to the cake mix directions.
    2. 2
      Prepare the cake mix according to box directions. Divide the batter evenly in 6 small bowls. You will dye each bowl individually.
    3. 3
      To make the colors, use the following amounts of food coloring. Make sure you scrape the sides of the bowls well while mixing to get any additional food coloring mixed into the batter. FOOD COLORING AMOUNTS:.
    4. 4
      Purple: 9 red + 6 blue drops.
    5. 5
      Blue: 12 blue drops.
    6. 6
      Green: 12 green drops.
    7. 7
      Yellow: 12 yellow drops.
    8. 8
      Orange: 12 yellow + 4 red drops.
    9. 9
      Red: 18 drops red.
    10. 10
      After you have mixed the batter colors, line 24 muffin cups.
    11. 11
      Evenly distribute the batter between the cups in the order that you dyed them, layering them carefully. I used about a half of a spoonful of each color per cup.
    12. 12
      Bake according to cake mix directions.
    13. 13
      Frost with white icing and add rainbow sprinkles.

      Thanks for sharing!! First tried with my trusted cupcake recipe, but I think the amount of mixing needed for the coloring and the time needed to spoon out may have overworked the batter- they barely rose. Worked out perfectly, though, with store bought cake mix. Amazed the kids! Pic posted
