In Honor of Rainbows
A couple of nights ago I had a hankering (what a word) for something sweet. So, in honor of chancing upon a beautiful, bright, double rainbow, my cousins and I decided to make rainbow cupcakes!
Peter and Kathleen had a blast blending the colors. It was a perfect activity for both a 12 year old and a "5 & 3/4!" year old. With Kathleen's help measuring, we made a vanilla batter from scratch. Then we divided the batter into four bowls and they each picked two colors to create using food dye. They mixed up purple, green, yellow, and a lovely peach color. Then we spooned the batter into the cupcake liners in various patterns: all four in a rainbow, two colors, mismatched, etc.
P.S. We also spent the night by Kathleen teaching me the moves to this song they are learning at school. I love it! See if you recognize it too...
