Yummy fun! Made cupcakes from this recipe with my 6 & 4 yo niece and nephew and they had a blast! (Although, I'm not sure if their favorite part wasn't licking all the bowls!)
We used a Duncan Hines white cake-mix and made the cake according to the recipe on the box, using egg whites. Used gel paste, neon and regular, and they turned out very bright! We also made 3 different color icings and topped with sprinkles.
The kids were so excited about being a part of making them and couldn't wait to see the end results so they stayed very engaged in the project. YMMV.
I was originally concerned the colors would blend together, but that wasn't an issue at all since the batter was thick enough.
I used cupcake liners, but would not use them in the future. The ones I used were thin and their lack of weight caused them to ride up in the muffin tins until they were full, and it made filling them more tedious. My experience was they created an extra step/expense that just wasn't necessary.
Used the White Cake Frosting II recipe from this site, but used butter flavored Crisco i/o plain. The flavor was great, but it made the color of the icing off-white, so if you're wanting white icing, don't substitute. I also needed more than the 4 T water the recipe called for.
I'm not a cake mix kinda gal, but I must say, they tasted great!
