Double Rainbow Cupcakes


  • 3 drops each red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple food coloring
  • 1/4 cup each red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple candy melts
  • 1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix
  • 24 cupcake wrappers
  • 12 quart size freezer bags
  • 1 can Betty Crocker whipped fluffy white icing
  • water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on box
  • 1 wax paper


1 _ Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil and water. Mix well.

2 _ Divide batter into six quart freezer bags. Add 3 drops of food coloring into each bag so you have a bag of each color. Seal and squeeze bag to combine.

3 _ Cut a corner off each bag and pipe out about 2 tsp. of each color into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers.

4 _ Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, until done.

5 _ While cupcakes are baking, melt each color of candy melts in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each interval, until smooth.

6 _ Spoon each color candy melt into a quart freezer bag, snip of an end, and use to draw rainbows onto wax paper. Let set completely.

7 _ When cupcakes are cooled, frost with Betty Crocker fluffy white icing. Peel rainbows off wax paper and place on top to garnish.
