Family Fun magazine rainbow cupcakes

I received my first issue of Disney's Family Fun magazine. I got a one year subscription for $3.21 or close to that. I saw it posted on then go to their pyp blog and follow them and get their great deals they find. Anyway my twins instantly spotted the rainbow cupcakes recipe they had in the magazine and wanted to make them today. So we did. It was a snowy cold day perfect for cupcakes. These came out really cute but next time I will use less batter in each cupcake since ours spilled over.
Rainbow cupcakes in their Treat of the month section in the back of the magazine March 2010 issue

Rainbow cupcakes
Prepare your favorite white cake mix ( we used a homemade cake mix)
Divide the batter into six small container or bowls.
In bowl #1 add 18 drops of red food color
In bowl #2 add 12 yellow drops and 4 red drops of food color
In bowl #3 add 12 drops of yellow food color
In bowl #4 add 12 drops of green food color
In bowl #5 add 12 drops of blue food color
In bowl #6 add 9 drops of red and 6 drops of blue food color
Mix well until you have all the colors of the rainbow

Line 16 muffin pan wells with baking cups
We started with the red first but you could go backwards and start with purple.
We added the red, then the orange, yellow, green, blue, then purple until the muffin tins were full.

Bake at 350 until toothpick comes out clean. You will have rainbow cupcakes. Then top with Whipped topping and serve. The Boys really loved doing this and It helped them with learning their colors. And about adding colors together to get different colors. Happy baking with the kids, Michelle
