Tie-Dye Cupcakes {Two Color Cupcakes}

21 Apr

This week was so busy for us.  Ben traveled to Taiwan for work and the boys and I traveled back home for a visit.  It was a whirl wind week of seeing friends and family.  We had an amazing time.  On Tuesday we celebrated our dear friend Ms. Betty’s birthday at Jennifer and Tim’s house.  We were in charge of bringing dessert and what did we bring?  Cake mix… yep, that’s how it goes when you travel!  We brought a cake mix and all the stuff you need to make yummy cake and amazing frosting.  Our friend Jennifer had the idea to make swirly tie-dye cupcakes so that is what we did!  We chose orange and purple because those are two of Ms. Betty’s favorite colors!  Here’s the scoop:

Make a white cake mix according to the package directions

Split the batter into two separate bowls

Using gel food coloring (we used the wilton brand) dye the two bowls of batter two different colors (you can obviously do more colors if you just split up the batter into several different bowls)

Pour one color of the batter into about 1/4 of the cupcake lined pan

Pour the other color on top and repeat the process with any remaining dye

Using a toothpick swirl the batter together

Bake as directed and decorate for your favorite birthday girl or boy!

Top with your favorite frosting recipe (we used Wilton’s Buttercream icing Recipe)
