How to Make RAINBOW CUPCAKE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 10 cups from a 12-cup muffin tin (or line with paper liner).
  • 2In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Add in dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • 3Divide batter evenly into 5 small bowls, each should have a little more than 1/3 cup of batter.
  • 4Add about 1/2 tsp. food coloring to each bowl to make red, orange, yellow, green and blue batters. Stir well so that there are no streaks. Add additional food coloring if necessary.
  • 5Starting with the blue batter, add a small spoonful to each of the 10 muffin cups (just over 1/2 Tbsp. in each).
  • 6Repeat with each of the remaining colors, working next with green, then yellow, then orange and lastly with red. Do not attempt to move or spread the batter, it could cause the colors to combine. Just allow them to spread on it's own.
  • 7Bake for about 15 minutes, do a toothpicks test and if it comes out clean, it's done. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack completely before frosting.
  • 8FROSTING: In a large bowl, beat together butter, milk and vanilla. Gradually add in the confectioner's sugar until the frosting reaches a thick, spreadable consistency. Pipe or spread frosting onto each cupcake.
