Angel Food Bakery owner, Katy Gerdes, showes us how to make fool-proof rainbow cupcakes.


1. Vanilla cake batter (homemade or from box)
2. Food coloring
3. Vanilla frosting (homemade or from box)
4. Zip lock bags
5. Cupcake pan & liners
6. Sprinkles


1. Divide cake batter into 6 portions (one for each color)

2. Tint each portion with food coloring

3. Using a ziplock bag with small hole in corner, pipe colored batter into cupcake pans in layers or spoon batter into pans (create more tie dye affect)
