Pink Princess Cupcakes #11- Rainbow Princess

Rainbow Princess
This is #11 out of 28 cupcake designs that I am making from the book "Pink Princess Cupcakes" by Barbara Beery. Be sure to check out all of the Pink Princess Cupcakes that I have made!

 I started this cupcake by using the Yellow Cupcake Recipe by Martha Stewart. I knew this recipe would be great for this particular cupcake because it is a very thick batter and the colors wouldn't bleed together while baking. The recipe makes 12 so that is perfect for 2 of each color.
Cupcake Batter--- Cupcake Batter in Liners--- Cream Cheese Frosting
I first divided up the batter equally into 6 bowls and colored it the colors of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet, skipping Indigo. I remember learning the order at school by rememebering "Roy G. Biv." That may be all I remember from school!
 Then I put a baby size spoonful of each color into the liners, following the reverse direction on the rainbow with the Violet on the bottom. There is not a lot of each color in each liner so you won't end up with perfect stripes, but that's okay!
While the cupcakes were cooling, I divided up a container of Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting into 6 bowls and colored it the same as I did the batter. This made the perfect amount for the 12 cupcakes.
I sprinkled the top of each color with sanding sugars in the same color as the icing, in the book she had jimmies and different shaped sprinkles, but I just used what I had on hand.
They turned out nice and colorful!
Inside and out!

  10. Hi Alana, the colors are mostly Wilton colors purchased from Michaels Arts and Craft Store, but I think the Orange is Americolor from a local cake store. The Wilton brand also be purchased directly from from the website.
