I did cheat and used a box of white cake mix and made it according to the instructions on the box.
Once the batter was made I divided it into three bowls and added food coloring. I chose colors that my friends liked. Pink for Megs, blue for me and yellow for Jocelyn but you can use any colors.
Layer the colored batter into cupcake tins until they are 1/2 to 3/4 full and cook as per the instructions.
I decided to use rainbow colored frosting too but you can have fun with it, be creative and create your own style. YUM!
