Colorful Rainbow Muffins Recipe

Well.. It's not really a recipe.. I admit I sort of just took a ready cake mix, prepared it as it said on the package (with the things that needed to be added), and instead of putting the mixture into a cake pattern, I put it into a cupcakes pan.

For this I used a golden cake mixture. You can use a yellow or a white one for this, too. The only thing I added was food coloring, to get the colorful effect! After preparing the mixture, I just divided it in 5 and poured each section into a small dish. Each section got it's color by adding 3-6 drops food coloring into it. (White cake mixture may need less).
The frosting was made out of Nutella. I've found the recipe for the frosting here.

  • 1/2 C butter, room temperature
  • 1 C Nutella
  • 1 C powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 T milk
Beat butter until smooth. Add Nutella and beat together until thoroughly combined. Slowly add powdered sugar, mixing until combined. Add vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add additional milk or powdered sugar as needed to reach desired consistency. Pipe or spread onto completely cooled cupcakes.

I also added colorful star sprinkles on top :)
