Rainbow Cupcakes

March is here!! full of color, pots full of gold, shamrocks, and of course Rainbow Cupcakes!

Have a you ever attended to make these cuties at home but had no idea how to?...it's no so hard! it's actually really fun :)

Just follow this easy tutorial via Spearmint Baby

As directed by Spearmint Baby

Mix up a box of white cake mix. (i used Betty Crocker) preferably a recipe that uses egg whites and oil instead of butter (your colors will come out better and cupcakes will brown less.)
*divide batter into bowls
Add your food coloring. i used McCormick's neon pack for my pink, green, blue, and purple. then i mixed the neon pink with the yellow from the original pack to get my orange. this is really just a guestimate until you get the desired colors.
Line your muffin pan with cupcake wrappers. i used silver cupcake wrappers to make "surprise" cupcakes and white/clear wrappers for the rest of the cupcakes:
Using a fork or spoon drizzle each color on top of the next. i used forks because i found that it gave me more control. do not try to spread the colors out on your own (it will cause your colors to mix).
purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, pink
Bake (as directed on your cake mix-i baked about 21 min.) let cool and frost them if you like.
