First attempt at rainbow cupcakes.

If you're wondering why I've been MIA it is because I have been on another massive road trip and adding another 5,000 miles to my Kia. I have since returned to a half way moved in apartment that was desperately in need of being unpacked and made livable. So naturally what was the first thing I did when I got home? Make cupcakes. Don't ask why.

I wanted to take this cake decorating class with a friend because the class itself was so cheap but then I realized you had to buy all of your own supplies so I discarded that idea for awhile.

Then I remembered "Oh, duh. I have tons of supplies from my birthday." So it looks like cake decorating 101 is on my to-do list again.

In the mean time I had a strange urge to make cupcakes - rainbow ones that is. I have gel food coloring which produces paler colors than the other kind (forget what it is called) so my cupcakes came out pastel but the insides matched the sprinkles that I used so they turned out pretty darn cute.

They're just store bought cake mix divided into separate bowls with a few drops of food coloring in each. Yummy!

I promise I'll soon return with more action. I've been sewing up a storm since I got back but I need to make some time to take proper pictures.


  1. Welcome back! I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip!

  2. That rainbow cupcake looks really yummy! I'm hoping you'll gonna post the recipe so I can also try to make that for my upcoming baby shower party. Anyway, welcome back! :)

  3. The cupcakes were just a box white cake mix and store bought frosting with gel food coloring added. Pretty simple.
