Somewhere Over The Rainbow: Rainbow Cupcakes

What a seriously beautiful song. Judy Garland singing it, only, from the amazing movie The Wizard of Oz! The song makes me think of hope and love and compassion, and making dreams come true. Pretty lovely!

Sweet Claire ordered from afar a delightful gift for her friends Tara and Elladee’s housewarming: rainbow cupcakes! These cupcakes are sheer magic — only when you bake that multi-colored batter in the oven, and hear the timer go off, and you peak into the oven do you get to see how the cupcakes decided to turn out! Blobs of neon colours make up these rainbow vanilla cupcakes, which I topped off with a swirl of pretty pink, blue and purple vanilla buttercream.

    Sorry, I dd read it’s a star tip but was wondering what size?

  10. Stefanie

    These are wonderful! How did you get the frosting colors to stay so separate? I have tried and they end up getting all mixed together!

    @lullie, it’s a 1M tip!

    @Stefanie, i wonder if its the consistency of your frosting? Try making it “stiffer” and it will hold better together i bet! :)
