Rainbow Cupcakes Recipe!

Here’s a Super Fun Recipe for Rainbow Cupcakes!! We made ours for St. Patrick’s Day!  Leprechauns love rainbows!! Hope you enjoy making this recipe too. Eating them is even more fun!


* White cake mix (see box for rest of ingredients to preparing)
* Food Coloring (red, blue, yellow, green)
* White Frosting
* Sprinkels
* A couple of little helpers


1. Prepare white cake mix according to direction on box, then divide the batter evenly among six small bowls. See chart below, dye each bowl of batter a rainbow color.

2.  Spray or line 12 cupcake muffin tins, then starting with the purple batter evenly distribute among the cups, then the blue, and so on, following the order shown. Gently spread each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the color underneath.

3.  Now Bake according to directions on box, after they are cooled spread with frosting and add some rainbow sprinkles!

We filled our cupcake tins a little to full and they were Huge!  Then the next batch of 6 were tiny.  Next time I wouldn’t fill them all the way to the top! 

ENJOY!!!   😀

(Thanks to Family Fun for the recipes!)

My seven year old and I decided to make these. When he saw how hard it was to do the layers evenly without over filling the tins, he recommended using a ziploc bag with the tip cut out. Fabulous idea! Made it so much easier. Thanks for this fun idea. I also took “rainbow” colored fruit and veggies to his class as a surprise snack today. Total hit both teacher and kids loved them! Even without the protein ;). Lol

Your son is so smart! What a great idea about the zip lock bags!

So glad his class and his teacher loved the rainbow snack! Even if it had no protein! hehehe! 😉
