I first made these to surprise my daughter & they've been a huge hit ever since! We also used a white cake mix once & made red, white & blue cupcakes for The Fourth of July. You can do so many different things with this. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Ingredients

1
yellow cake mix
water
oil
eggs
food coloring

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix cake mix according to directions. Line cupcake pans with 24 liners.
2
Choose the number of colors you'd like to use & separate the batter into equal amounts. (4 colors, 4 bowls...etc.) Add food coloring to each bowl to create the colors for your tie dyed cupcakes.
3
Starting with the color you want on the bottom, spoon in about a tbsp of the cake batter. Repeat this step for each muffin cup. Move to the next color & repeat. Do not worry if the color doesn't go all the way across....it's cute that way.
4
Layer all colors until the batter reaches 1/2 to 3/4 full. Bake according to package directions.
5
Ice with your favorite icing (we use homemade buttercream)& decorate with sprinkles or colored sugars.
6
***This can also be used to make a layered cake. Just pour the different colors, one at a time, into the cake pans & bake. ****
