Rainbow Cupcakes

Last night, I was hosting a Autumn Fest dinner which also included a four and a seven year old and I wanted the dessert to be more for them compared to the normal autumn related pie flavors (apple and or pumpkin) with ice cream.

After I saw the first mention about rainbow cupcakes (and or cakes) back in 2009, I knew I had to make it once the kidlet was old enough to really enjoy the dessert. And it wasn’t until I was going though my blinder of recipes the other day, I remembered about this dessert and just had to do it.

Since I first say that recipe, there have been many different versions of how to make it. How I made mine, was I used my favourite white cake mixed (box) and divided the batter into five bowls to add the different food colouring. For the icing, I did the seven minute icing.. It’s the only kind of icing that I do.. grew up with it and it works ..

This dessert was a hoot, not just with the girls but with everyone who attended this dinner.
