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!
Cool cupcakes! My whole family enjoyed them! Thanks!
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. :)
These were enjoyed by my son's classmates, for his birthday. I see that the yield is 12-16, but can't figure out why a cake mix that typically makes 24, only made 21. Somewhere, I lost 3 cupcakes in translation. I only used 5 colors (red, orange, green, blue and purple) and even dividing everything equally didn't let me use all colors in all cupcakes. It's OK, as I called them kaleidoscope cupcakes, instead. I made cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with non-pareils. They were very pretty to look at, also! Thanks for sharing the great recipe, Steph H.
These are so cool. Will be making them for generations. Kids went crazy for them and adults thought the were so cool! A fun activity with the kids. Thanks for making me a cool mom too Steph! UPDATE: Again I cant stress the coolness of these. I cant believe they are still waiting for more reviews. I made these tonight again but this time for my sons boyscout troop! WOW.....am I a popular scout mom now. Kids loved....loved...loved them. First time I used plain butter cream frosting this time I used rainbow chip frosting! Even my 99yr old patient thought they were cool. She told her family in Florida all about them and gobled it down like a little one!! THANKS A MILLION
Love making these. So fun and so easy and they always have a great reaction from those eating them!
How could you NOT rate these five stars! They're so much fun for kids to make. I had a cupcake making party for my twin seven year olds and this was the perfect cupcake! I can't wait to make a regular cake this summer.
PEACE LOVE & CUPCAKES How can you not smile when you see this cupcake!
made these wit hthe kids i babysit - they loved them it was a blast but we used the jar of funfetti frosting instead
These cupcakes were a huge hit with my son's 1st/2nd grade class. I loved hearing the "OOOH"s and "AAAH"s when they peeled back the cupcake wrapper. These cupcakes can be very time consuming if you're trying to achieve at true rainbow look. I would recommend using bags next time so you can fill one bag with each color. I used Kittencal's Chocolate Buttercream Frosting/Icing (#89207), which was excellent. Very fun recipe!
