Over The Rainbow

I bought some outrageously expensive all natural food coloring at the Co -op over the Christmas holiday season. So I am always thinking of ways to use it. I got this idea for making rainbow cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day. I was a little worried that the colors of cake batter would bleed into each other but a friend of mine found a blog where a mom had done the same thing and it worked perfectly! Owen and I decided to give it a try. Our batter did end up bleeding and our cupcakes looked more tye died than layered but we had a super fun time making them and sharing them with our friends for St. Patrick's Day!

Look at all those beautiful colors!

Mmmmmm, we frosted them with white clouds (agave cream cheese frosting!)

Now for a taste test...

Look Mom, it's a... er.... sorta... like a rainbow :-D

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
