Do you ever get an idea in your head and it just sticks there all day? That totally happens to me all of the time. If you recall I have already done one rainbow cupcake experiment and it was a pretty good success.
Well, the other day I was thinking about my Wilton color gels and if it would be possible to make each individual cupcake a totally different color (mainly so I could test all of them out). Well, I did it. I would consider it a 7 on the success scale (you’ll see why below).
Here we are. All 12 Wilton colors!
So, I made my favorite vanilla cupcake batter (thank you Amy Sedaris!) and added the gel by way of tooth pick to each cup. I had to be very careful to not puncture the adorable Hello Kitty liners.
Eventually I went back and mixed a few colors and made a few less vibrant/more vibrant ones. I was having way too much fun.
And now you can see the fail.
You see, because I was so worried about puncturing the liner, I didn’t really get the coloring all the way to the edges or the bottom of the cupcake. I wasn’t too bummed though, it just gives me a reason to do a 3rd experiment!
Sorry for the bad picture, I just wanted to show all the colors at once
For frosting, I decided I wanted to make a chocolate mouse whipped ganache because even the name sounded delicious. This turned out to be extremely easy, but next time I will use milk chocolate over dark. It was just a little too overpowering.
Nothing like sprinkles to top a delicious cupcake!
So, I still haven’t perfected the rainbow cupcake. Which, in all honestly, doesn’t really bother me all too much. It just means I get to experiment more!
