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!

Step-by-Step

  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.
