pastel rainbow cupcakes


I created these pastel cupcakes pretty much by accident as I was initially hoping for bright neon rainbow cupcakes but the food dyes that I used weren't as vivd as I was expecting, they turned out to be the best accident I've ever made though. They are incredibly easy to make, you just make a regular batch of cake mixture then spoon it into separate bowls for each colour of dye, then splodge random spoonfuls of each mix on top of one another in the cake cases. Be sure to not overcook your cupcakes as this will make them too brown on the outside and the colours won't show through half as well. I went for the wet kind of icing that's made up from equal amounts of icing sugar and water mixed together, I love how tasty this makes the cakes but doesn't detract from the pretty colours either.

  1. I made something similar to this a few months back, but my first batch didn't cook properly. You do have to use a lot of colouring to make them bright.
