Taste a Rainbow

"Holy Time-Consuming Batman!!!" These take a lot of prep time but ... are totally worth it in the end! I made them for our preschool kids today and we let them frost the top with green frosting - it was so fun to see the kids eyes light up when they saw the rainbow!
The recipe:
*Prepare your favorite vanilla cake mix recipe (or box)
*Divide prepared cake mixture into 6 different bowls
*Use food coloring to color each bowl of prepared cake mixture
(red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple)
*Layer the prepared cake mixture one at a time in muffin lined tins
*Bake according to directions
*Frost with favorite frosting recipe

How funny! I posted about the same rainbow cupcakes on my blog today. They were prefect for St. Patrick's Day, not to mention delicious!

Ok I just saw your Rainbow Munchies post and love the concept. Do you mind if I post (and link to it) on my blog? I would love to feature the idea.
