Tie-Dye Cupcakes

About the time that everyone wanted to start a bakery I was also trying out my skills as a baker. My brother went to school and played hockey in the U.S. so my parents crossed the border to visit all the time. My mom would find fun things all the time and bring them back to me. One time, she found a Duff cake box for tie-dye cake!


The instructions were very clear and the box came with everything I needed. It would be really easy to do it again. Make cake mix then separate to add the colours.


I mixed them by hand to save doing dishes.


Six colours in total! Remember your ROY G BIV (Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)? Oops. No indigo.


I decided to make cupcakes instead of a layered cake. I poured the red cake in first then orange and so on. I tried my best to pour into the centre but the great thing about tie-dye is that it’s very forgiving of mistakes.


Don’t over-fill the cups or you’ll have a mess on your hands! How cool do they look?!


Finished baking and ready for some frosting.


Yum! And so colourful! I bet there are some other ways to pour and mix the colours that would work, too!


Mmm, delish!
