Rainbow cupcakes

It has been a long and exciting weekend of seeing friends again a long time and of baking! I made not one, not two, but three different cakes in three days for different occasions.

These cupcakes were part of an ensemble for a unicorn themed birthday. I know I could’ve applied myself more and more something more decorative but the cake took most of my time which was quite limited to start with.

INGREDIENTS- makes 13

210gr butter

2 cups sugar

4 eggs

2 cups flour

1tsp baking powder

5 big tbsp plain yogurt

Blue, red, yellow, green food colouring

For the frosting-

250 gr cream cheese

3 cups of sugar ( keep extra if needed)

100 gr butter

Sprinkles and edible glitter

Turn oven on 180•. Beat butter and sugar until combined and then add the eggs. Scrape down the bowl and add the flour, yogurt, baking powder. Now divide the batter into 5 bowls and colour them green, red , blue, purple ( combine red and blue) and orange ( combine red and yellow.

Now this is where i would change what I did. I suggest putting all these in different piping bags and dividing them into the tray. Doing so makes it easier, faster and it would make more cupcakes.

Start layering the colours from purple to blue to green to orange to red. I mixed some with a small spoon to make swirls. Bake for 20 mins.

Make the frosting by beating all the ingredients together. Now I coloured the inside of a piping bag with blue and red. Just make a line with a brush. And spoon the frosting into it.

Pipe and sprinkle 😊


Ciao for now xox
