I have made this various times and I love it!!!!! Especially when you take it out of the wrapper and cut it in half to see all the pretty layers!!!! I would definently want all of you to try it!
very fun, colorful cupcakes that the kids enjoyed making, but they ended up being very dry and crumbly. not sure what they would need to be more moist, but it could use something.
I need a dessert for a July 4th campout and experminted with this recipe. Instead of using all rainbow colors, I used red, white and blue. Some color did run into the layer beneath but could still tell each color. I put white icing on top and red, white and blue sprinkles on top. They really came out nice. Thanks for a wonderful idea!
Really fun recipe.. everyone thinks its complicated but it really isnt!
Great recipe! I did make a few tweaks. I always bake with corn oil instead of vegetable oil and use a lower temperature and have never had an issue cakes being dry. I also used a touch more vanilla and less flour. I didn't have red food dye, so I threw in pinch of cherry jello mix. They looked and tasted great! Definitely will make again!
I made these but didnt dye the batter I made them for fathers day and dyed food doesn't appeal to my hubby but I needed a white cake mix so used this. Its VERY delicious much more moist than I would of guessed considering how thick the batter was. I pairs it with the rum icing from this site (altered) and they were great and easy to make!
Thank you it worked just like you said
This was fun to make and it looked really cool. The only down side was that is did not taste amazing. The kids I made it for liked it but for me I think it could have been a little bit tastier.
