Taste the Rainbow...Happy Saint Patty's Day.

I saw this idea a while back with a cake so I thought I'd give it a try with cupcakes.  It's really hard to get it all to come out right but you just have to go easy on the layers and it all works out...

I use icing color for a really, really rich color.  Using 6 glass cups, I seperated my cake mix into 6 separate containers and added all the classic rainbow colors...
while singing...Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple...

Aren't they fabulous?

Just spoon a 1/2 tablespoon of each color into the cupcake cups, one layer right on top of the next.  It comes out alot nicer than the jello did. :)

We all starred in awe at my psychedelic looking cupcakes.

Then we opened one up!

My friend Jenny had more fun eating the colorful creation than actually tasting it I think.  


She was so amazed with each bite!  So, was I!

Now! You can lick your computer screen!

I think Jake found his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Ooo and check out the color of the paper after wards too!
