Rainbow Cupcakes!

I love cupcakes.  I love fancy cupcakes.
I love fancy recipes that are actually easy and use simple things to get a cool end result, don't you?
I'd seen these online, and was determined to give it a try.

I bet you didn't even know that you needed a rainbow cupcake, did you?  

Here's how to make them for yourself.

Take one of these:
Make it like normal, and then find some of these:
I used 6 colors, but it doesn't really matter how many you use.  
Just imagine the cool color combos you can create!
{But in my opinion, if you use more than 6 colors the layers will be a little challenging to get in all the cupcakes.  So I'd use 6 or less.....}
Separate out your batter and color it.  
It is helpful to decide what color you'll use last and make a little extra of it. 

Layer the colors one by one into the cups.    
My mix said it made 24 cupcakes, but I only got 18.  I like tall cupcakes.
Having a little extra of the last color makes it easier to even-up your cupcakes at the end so they bake evenly.
Bake as directed, and they will emerge like this!

After they cool, ice and add another rainbow of sprinkles.

Love them!
