This was a popular thing on a baking/cooking blog discussion forum that I used to frequent, where many people were posting their versions of this cake. it looked like fun so I decided to make it myself! It was a huge hit at a potluck I brought 'em to! This would also be fun project for a slumber party or a birthday party! :-p

How To Make tie-dye cupcakes!

  • 1
    Make batter according to directions on the box (or use a homemade version).
  • 2
    Separate batter into 4 (or however many colors you want) different bowls. I used blue, green, orange, and pink food coloring.
  • 3
    Put 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!
  • 4
    Bake according to directions.
  • 5
    for the frosting: beat with an electric mixer for 2 minutes, scraping bowl often. For a thinner consistency, add milk a little at a time.
