A few weeks ago one of my darling, most precious students brought me a tie-dyed cupcake. It was beautiful. It was colorful. It was absolutely delicious. And ever since then I have been dying to have another. And another. And another. You get the picture. So, Sunday afternoon before Morgan Kate's nap we did a little baking.She mostly enjoyed sitting on the island and licking every mixer, spoon and bowl in sight. Hey, she gets it honest! I still do that.
Making the cupcakes was so easy and so much fun. We started by just following the directions on a box of white cake mix. Simple.
Then we separated the mix into four bowls and added food coloring. I was hoping for a more bold color scheme, but ended up with pastels. Very Easterish.
Then I poured the batter into the cups while MK took a rest on the island. The mix was actually enough to make 24 cupcakes, but I crammed all of it into 12 cupcakes. Big cupcakes.
We patiently waited, or at least tried to be patient, while the cupcakes baked.
And then presto - tie-dyed cupcakes courtesy of Mommy and Morgan Kate.
We let them cool while Morgan Kate napped and then it was time to decorate. MK got to decorate a few and I decorated the rest.
We went simple on the decorations - cream cheese frosting and colored sprinkles.
Morgan Kate loved them. Travis loved them. And I can't keep my hand out of the cupcake dish. They are so good!
Aren't they beautiful? I can't wait to make them again and experiment with different colors. Really any excuse to bake cupcakes works for me.
