Today was the last full day (for me) of Eva’s school vacation. So I had planned a special cooking activity to do with her. We were going to make Rainbow (Dash) cupcakes. I picked up some yellow cake and some blue frosting with rainbow colored sprinkles. I had seen other people making multicolored cakes and cupcakes online and I wanted to try it out. This would be a fun activity for both Eva and I to do together.
Eva helped me mix up all of the cake batter. She even helped crack the eggs. When all of the batter was mixed up I separated it into multiple bowls. There were six bowls in total, one for each color of the rainbow. I added the food color and she mixed them up.
I then layered out the batter into the pan.
I was surprised to find the batter hadn’t stayed in the nice neat layers that I made but instead came up and busted over the top of the pan in multicolor. Since the pan I used isn’t exactly a cupcake pan so when they were done I put them all on the same plate so that I could frost them.
Once they were frosted we were able to serve them up like pieces of cake.
While the cakes didn’t come out exactly like I wanted them to come out they did end up looking pretty cool and tasting great.
