      Reviewed for Aus/NZ Forum June Recipe Swap- made these tonight with my 8yo daughter. Easy to make and my family were eating the cakes before they had finished cooling! As I am gluten-free, my daughter Holly gives you 100 stars for these rainbow cupcakes. We made20 cupcakes, though our cases may have been larger than standard size. Photo to be posted. (Sorry to be so late with my review)

      This seems like a really fun recipe and gift idea! Would love to see a picture of it... I'm going to try the cake recipe you've shared because I've been looking for a great white cake recipe that gives light, melt-in-your-mouth cupcakes. Thanks for sharing!
