Here's a fun kid project to do for St. Patrick's day, or spring in general. I bet there are lots of snowy places around the country that could use a little rainbow cupcake magic right about now!
Start with separate but painstakingly equal batters and spoons. I divided half a batch of yellow cake batter evenly into bowls. The girls stirred in the colors. Using professional food colors (like these) is a good idea. They have much more vibrant colors and are very concentrated.
Painstakingly clean hands, of course.
Next layer: make sure not to stir it into the previous layer. And so on...
All six colors done! Perfection not required.
Some sky blue frosting goes on top.
Add some sprinkles, because everybody likes sprinkles.
