This recipe was quite disappointing. I tried to follow the recipe without using a cake mix, and making a white cake from scratch, using only the dry ingredients that the recipe shared in common with a mix. This made the batter extremely thin-- like soup. At this point I was doubtful already, so I tasted the batter. It barely had any flavor so I added some vanilla. I made the batter rainbowy, put it in the oven, and waited apprehensively. When it was ready, they hadn't even risen 1/2 way, but they were ready. I took a bite of one, and to my dismay, they tasted like less flavorful mini angel food cakes. YUCK. So, I threw all 24 cupcakes a away and proceeded to make a new batch from a yellow cake recipe (and they turned out great!). So, I rated it 2 stars because teh dying concept was cool. I'm sticking to my yellow rainbow cake recipe though. Any recipe that relies on a MIX deserves no more than 2 stars in my book. ~Bae
