A shade of the dramatic, where different is all there is.

Rainbow Bright Saturday Night Cupcakes

Tonight, rather than playing with nails or makeup a friend and I chose to spend our Saturday night doing something a little out of the norm, for us anyways.  Baking.

Using a basic white cake mix and standard vanilla frosting we made some Rainbow Bright Cupcakes.

Take a look at what we started with:

Once the cake mix was the right consistency we separated it into the 5 pink bowls.  Using food colouring, we turned the mix to yellow, green, blue, pink and purple.

Using the small spoons, begin transferring the mixes into your cupcake liners.  You can make any pattern that you like, with no rules.  Have some fun!

Each cupake liner should be about half full before going into the oven.

Follow the instructions for baking your cake mix, just like you normally would.

Let them cool before starting the icing process.  If you are impatient like the two of us, you can speed up this process by putting them out on the balcony in the middle of winter.  Prepare your icing the same way as you prepared your mix using food colouring.

Fill your Icing Pipe with the different colours of icing and apply to your fully cooled cupcakes.

    100% ridiculous. I was in the other room when this magic was happening, and I’m stunned at the level of effort and work that went into these.

    I know it took hours, I know I was fed FAR too many of them, and in the end, my body rebelled at the prospect of further cupcake consumption.

    You actually can taste the colour here, I can vouch for it. It was like a party in my pants – IN my mouth.

    Very sexual, start to finish, these cupcakes they made. Coloured all the shades of sin, and delectable just the same.
