Last night, I got a wild hair up my butt to give those cupcakes a try. I mean, afterall, today is Easter and all things colorful, right? So why not?
- Two boxes of white cake mix
- Gel food coloring
- Liquid chickens
- Vegetable oil
- Patience. Lots of patience. Lots and lots of patience.
|Looks like a painter's palette, doesn't it?|
|Three colors done, one to go|
|And...the first two dozen are ready to go in the oven|
The timer finally dinged eighteen minutes after the cupcakes went in and this is what I got...
|Yay! It looks like it worked!|
|Aren't they pretty?|
And tasted good, too. We had to try one.
|Can we say "sugar high"?|
The decoration is pretty run-of-the-mill boring stuff, but I can't wait to see the looks on the kids' faces when they bit into their cupcakes and find all the pretty colors. It's kind of like a reverse Easter egg, with the colors on the inside.
