Psychedelic Cupcake Tutorial

This weekend my friend Krista and I made the most colorful cupcakes for our friend's Andrew and Alex's joint birthday party.  They were the champions of the evening (next to the company!), and will be sure to kick any funfetti cupcake's butt in the future.
By the by, I was inspired by The Dainty Squid's cupcake Tutorial!

Psychedelic Cupcake Tutorial.

  • Light colored Cupcake Mix of your choice (I used boxed yellow cake mix because I was in a hurry, but you can use any light colored cake batter of your choice.)
  • 1 Measuring Cup
  • Food Coloring
  • Cupcake liners
  • Four bowls (or more)
  • Four spoons (or more)
  • Toothpicks
  • Cream cheese frosting (like you would want to use another kind anyway...psh.)

  1. Mix up the ingredients called for to make your cupcake batter.
  2. With a measuring cup, separate the batter into four bowls (or more, depending on how many colors you want to make.)
  3. Dye the batter in each bowl a different color with food coloring.  There should be a dye chart on the back of your box of dyes, but if not, this chart might help.  Also, Krista and I doubled the amount of dye if the color wasn't bright enough.
  4. Place your cupcake liners into your cupcake pan.
  5. Place a designated spoon to each batter color, and proceed to add small layers of each colored batter into the cupcake liners until the liner is halfway filled.
  6. Swirl with a toothpick (optional.)
  7. Bake.  Cool.  Frost.  Eat.
