Taste a Rainbow Cupcake

Here is a cute St. Patrick's Day Treat from Family Fun

White cake mix
Food coloring (red, blue, green, and yellow)
Baking cups
Whipped cream

Prepare your favorite white cake mix, then divide the
batter evenly among six small bowls. Following the color
chart below, dye each bowl of batter a rainbow color.

Purple - 9 red and 6 blue drops
Blue-12 drops
Green-12 drops
Yellow-12 drops
Orange-12 yellow and 4 red drops
Red-18 drops

Line 16 muffin pan wells with baking cups. Evenly distribute
the purple batter among the cups, then the blue, and so
on, following the order shown. As you go, gently spread
each layer of batter with the back of a spoon to cover the
color underneath. Bake the cupcakes according to your
recipe directions. Before serving, remove the paper
wrapping, and if you like, top each cupcake with a
whipped-cream cloud.
