Last weekend we celebrated a very important birthday for a very important little girl with an Ariel cake and rainbow cupcakes!
Memaw made the Ariel cake with a cake pan that one of our good friends let us borrow (Thanks Lisa!).
Mommy made the cupcakes by using a white cake mix and adding 2 t pure almond extract and then divided the batter into six bowls.
Then I added food coloring to each bowl. Keep adding until your color reaches the vibrant hue you desire.
Now spoon a little of each color into each cupcake cup. Just layer the colors, don’t intentionally mix.
Bake them up according to the box.
Decorate with icing of your choice (here is a good one) and sprinkles.
Ready to party 🙂
