Mini Tie Dye Cupcakes

Leave a comment

Last Thursday I made cupcakes for a school festival just like the cupcakes I made for our school’s fall festival last year.

This time I only made about sixty mini cupcakes unlike last time where I made over one hundred regular sized cupcakes.

I wanted to decorate these in a simple but different way. So instead of just doing a boring cupcake swirl…..

I did TIE DYE cupcake swirls. Yup. I just went against the rules of single colored swirls. Oops.

Cupcakes have never looked so colorful. These were so easy to make yet it looks like something a unicorn would’ve eaten.

Unicorns or not, these cupcakes were single bites of deliciousness.

To get the tie dye effect, you basically take three different colors of frosting (or as many as you like) and place each color, vertically, in different sections of the piping bag. The colors I used were pink, blue, and yellow. When I squeezed the piping bag, the colors slightly mixed creating new colors. The pink and blue created purple, the yellow and blue made green, and the pink and yellow made orange. I used my vanilla cake recipe to make these cupcakes which you can find in my recipes page.

These cupcakes would be a great treat at any festival or party!
