Amazing Rainbow Cupcakes!

This is by far and beyond the most fun I've ever had baking! I love these cupcakes so much! I made these with some kids I was babysitting and it was a hit! Then we brought them to a bake sale and they were the best seller! Kids love these crazy colors and so did the adults. Please do yourself a favor and make these!

Amazing Rainbow Cupcakes (stolen from Our Best Bites) Thank you for sharing this recipe!

1 white cake mix
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

1. Combine all ingredients until incorporated.

2. Divide batter according to how many colors you are using. I used 5 colors and it worked out to a little over 1 cup for each color.

3. Add food coloring to each bowl of cake batter to the desired color. I used the Wilton Gel Dye. I can't believe how bright the colors turned out! Goodbye to McCormick Liquid Food Coloring!

4. Now time to start layering! You can get creative here! Change the order of layers, do some swirls. I made mine in very specific orders and the kids I was baking with made their own tray of crazy, creative cupcakes which turned out just as beautiful(if not better than mine)!

5. Bake according to the box (about 20 mins on 350).

6. Ice with your favorite icing and eat them fast before everyone else gets them!
