So I’m writing this while recovering from a cold, which is never fun. Every time I tweet or write ‘I hate having a cold!’, I keep asking myself, who does like having a cold?! No one, but it still bears repeating.
And while I don’t actually celebrate Christmas, I hate being sick on a holiday since I don’t have work and am allowed to just lounge around and do nothing, since that’s what everyone else is doing. But instead of relaxing by the fireplace, I was stuck on the couch with cans of Ginger ale and tissues and a hacking cough.
My family hosted a party on Christmas, mostly because everyone was off, and I wasn’t allowed anywhere in a 5 foot radius of my darling nephew. Which sucked because everyone was cooing over him, while I sulked in a corner, trying not to infect everyone with my germs. I think it was in everyone’s best interests that I was sent to bed early with a large dose of cold medication…
Like so many things in life, these cupcakes didn’t go as planned. Technically they were supposed to be rainbow cupcakes, but then I got lazy with the food colouring, so they became tie-dye! Lol. ^_^
These are super easy to make and even more fun to decorate and eat! You can use any combination of colours for the cake batter and the frosting, and they can also work well for holidays. Anyway, do try them out and let me know how you get on!
I made these for the kids I teach at a Friday night Islamic School, and they loved the tie-dye effect. If you have kids coming over or an event around kid-friendly food, definitely make these! The batter is soft and fluffy, and the frosting creamy and sweet. Also, you can get crazy with the colours and try all sorts of different effects!
Anyway, I hope you guys try these fun cupcakes out. 🙂 Hopefully I’ll be much more coherent in my next post, but hope you’re all having a good week!
Thanks for reading,
