Every now and then,I find an occasion that calls for cake. You know — birthdays, first days of school, Tuesdays. Whatever.
Typically when these kind of events roll around, I happily volunteer to create the cake, but I find it difficult to make the same kind of cake, or cupcakes in this matter, twice. I’m constantly trying to come up with new twists to change things up; why not? I like living on the edge and keeping my cupcakes interesting.
I’m excited to share with you the easiest trick to make tie dye cupcakes and I promise that they are far easier to make than they look! You ready?
Begin by mixing up your favorite yellow or white box cake mix according to the directions. I wouldn’t attempt this with chocolate as the batter will be too dark to work. Scoop your cake batter into cupcake liners.
Now for the trick: add one drop of food coloring to each of the uncooked cupcakes. Use a toothpick to swirl the color through the batter. Be careful not to swirl it in too much; you won’t get the traditional swirled tie dye look.
Bake the cupcakes according to the directions on the box.
Here’s what the cupcakes will look like in all their tie dye glory after they come out of your oven. Fun, right?
To create the tie dye frosting, I used the same concept as the cupcakes. I added a few drops of food coloring to a packaged jar of frosting and stirred it a smidge. Stir enough to disperse the color, but so that you still see the ribbons of color. Frost your cupcakes. Sprinkles or mini M&M’s add the perfect final touch.
