    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Cupcakes

    Units: US | Metric

    • 19 1/2 ounces white cake mix
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 cup water
    • 6 ounces food coloring (Gel food coloring is best, Betty Crocker offers traditional colors as well as neon colors)
    • 8 ounces cream cheese frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the cake batter according to package directions.
    2. 2
      Evenly divide prepared batter into several different bowls. The amount of bowls will depend on the amount of colors you want for your cupcakes.
    3. 3
      Add a generous amount of gel food coloring to each bowl until you have a vibrant batter.
    4. 4
      I usually mix 7 bowls - red, orange, pink, yellow, green, blue, and purple.
    5. 5
      Line your muffin tin with paper cups and then begin spooning the colored batter into the cups.
    6. 6
      Add batter color by color, one tablespoon of red in each of the cups, then added a tablespoon of orange on top of the red, and so on until all colors were used. The colors will not "leak".
    7. 7
      Fill the cups approximately 2/3 full of batter.
    8. 8
      Bake as directed on the box.
    9. 9
      Allow the cupcakes to cool completely, and frost to your liking.
    10. 10
      I used whipped cream cheese frosting to give the cupcakes a "cloud" effect.

      Wonderful idea! I just made these for my best friend, as i can't really afford to get her a nice birthday gift this year. She absolutely adored them!

      These were amazing!! Such a great idea! Used a from-scratch recipe instead of a box mix, and had some neon food coloring on hand. They look great. :)
