Family Fun Magazine has to be my favorite magazine ever! I love all the children's activities and recipes they have. In one of the recent issues, there was a recipe in the back to make rainbow cupcakes. I honestly didn't think the color would take, or that the colors wouldn't blend together when cooked. But it worked great! This is also a great activity to help young children with counting because you will need quite a few drops of food coloring to achieve these bright colors.
Purple: 9 red & 6 blue drops Blue: 12 drops Green: 12 drops Yellow: 12 drops Orange: 12 yellow & 4 red drops Red: 18 drops
All you need is a box of white cake mix made as the box says, then split it into six different bowls and add the right number of drops, bake, and viola! I can't look at these cupcakes without smiling.
