Ingredients

1
white cake batter (mix or homemade)
food coloring (few colors)

FOR BUTTERCREAM FROSTING:

1 lb
powdered sugar
1/4 c
milk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 stick
butter

Step-By-Step

1Make batter according to directions on the box (or use a homemade version).

2Separate batter into 4 (or however many colors you want) different bowls. I used blue, green, orange, and pink food coloring.

3Put paper liners in the muffin tins and spoon each color on top of each other randomly. Do not stir! That'll make it all a yucky color, haha!

4Bake according to directions.

5for the frosting: beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes, scraping bowl often. For a thinner consistency, add milk a little at a time.
