*CUPCAKE~LOVIN'S*... THE RECIPE !

**IRIE~RAINBOWLICIOUS** CUPCAKES...
WERE SUCH A SUCCESS THAT I DECIDED TO POST THE RECIPE FOR YOU ALL TO TRY OUT TOO !!! ; *D
THERE ARE A BUNCH OF PICTURES TO SHOW THEM IN THEIR GLORY (& NOT)...
I HOPE YOU GET THE IDEA !! ; *D
& I DO WANT TO WARN YOU THAT THAY DO TAKE A BIT OF TIME... BUT, THE END~RESULT IS OH~SO WORTH IT !!

:: FINISHED~CUPCAKE... TA~DAH !!! ::
*MORE* FINISHED CUPCAKES ~~~~>>> *HERE* !!

:: YOU WILL NEED ::
: 1 WHITE CAKE~MIX
: 2 EGGS
: 1 CUP SOUR~CREAM
: 1 TSP VANILLA
: 1/2 CUP MILK
: 1/3 CUP VEGGIE~OIL
: VARIOUS GEL~COLORS (WILTON)
: CUPCAKE LINERS


:: LETS GET STARTED ::
* PREHEAT OVEN TO 350o
* LINE CUPCAKE PANS WITH 24 LINERS & SET ASIDE.


:: LETS GET MIXING ::
* IN MEDIUM BOWL... COMBINE ALL INGREDIENTS & BLEND UNTIL MIXED WELL... I WAS TRYING TO COUNT HOW MANY *STIRS* IT WAS, BUT I KIND OF LOST COUNT WITH LITTLE~MIMI HELPING ME !! ; *)

STIR~IT~UP...LITTLE~DARLIN, STIR~IT~UP...


:: LET'S CHOOSE COLORS ::
* AT FIRST WE DECIDED TO GO FOR AN *IRIE* THEME ~ W/ GREEN, YELLOW & RED...
BUT, THEN MIMI DECIDED THAT SHE WANTED TO USE BLUE & PURPLE TOO !!
HEY, RAINBOWS WORK FOR ME TOO !! ; *)

:: LETS GET COLORING ::
* TAKE BATTER & DIVIDE INTO SMALL BOWLS... THE # WILL DEPEND ON HOW MANY COLORS YOU DECIDED ON... WE HAD 5.
* ADD EACH DYE~COLOR TO THE SEPARATE BOWLS OF BATTER ~ YOU CAN USE A TOOTHPICK TO ADD THE COLOR(A LITTLE~BIT @ A TIME, DEPENDING ON HOW DARK YOU WANT THE COLOR... I DID 2 KINDA~BIG DIPS FOR EACH COLOR OF BATTER)
* MIX WELL, UNTIL EACH OF THE COLORS ARE COMPLETELY BLENDED.
* SET ASIDE & GRAB YOUR CUPCAKE~PANS !! ; *)

PRETTY LITTLE CUPCAKE~BATTERS... SO BRIGHT & COLORFUL !!



:: NOW FOR THE *FUN* PART ::
* WE ARE GOING TO BE SPOONING THE BATTER INTO EACH CUPCAKE~LINER IN **LAYERS** BY TEASPOONFULS OR TODDLER~SPOONS HAPPEN TO WORK GREAT IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THOSE AROUND !!
* DEPENDING ON HOW MANY DIFFERENT COLORS YOU HAVE DECIDED ON WILL DETERMINE HOW MANY *SPOONFULS* OF BATTER YOU WILL NEED OF EACH COLOR
* NOW, REMEMBER NOT TO PUT TOO MUCH INTO EACH CUP WITH EACH LAYER, BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT YOU CUPCAKES OVERFLOWING... OR TO RUN OUT OF A CERTAIN COLOR BEFORE YOU ARE FINISHED WITH ALL THE CUPCAKES.


* OK ~ SO NOW THAT WE HAVE ALL THAT CLEARED~UP... LET'S START LAYERING !!
* GRAB A SMALL~BOWL OF COLD~WATER & SET NEXT TO YOUR BATTER... THIS IS *VERY* IMPORTANT FOR KEEPING THE BATTER FROM STICKING TO YOUR FINGER/SPOON WHILE YOU ARE EVENING OUT THE LAYERS OF BATTER !!
* SPOON IN 1ST LAYER OF BATTER TO EACH LINER & WET FINGER/SPOON WITH WATER & SMOOTH OUT EACH 1ST~LAYER. (ALL OF THAT COLOR SHOULD BE USED UNLESS YOU ARE PLANNING ON USING THAT COLOR AGAIN FOR SOME OF THE OTHER LAYERS IN THE CUPCAKES)



* CONTINUE THIS TECHNIQUE UNTIL ALL OF THE CUPCAKES ARE LAYERED WITH THE COLORS OF YOUR CHOICE & ALL OF THE BATTER IS FINISHED !
* MY CUPCAKE~LINERS WERE FILLED~UP ABOUT 2/3 OF THE WAY FULL.


:: LETS GET BAKING ::
* BAKE FOR APPROX. 18~22 MINUTES OR UNTIL TOOTHPICK COMES~OUT CLEAN WHEN POKED IN THE CENTER OF CUPCAKE.
* LET CUPCAKES COOL COMPLETELY BEFORE FROSTING THEM !


:: LETS GET SOME FROSTING ::
* OK ~ SO, I CHEATED A BIT HERE TOO... **COOL~WHIP** !!! ; *)
BUT, YOU COULD USE ANY *FAVORITE* FROSTING... I JUST DO NOT LIKE FROSTING TOO MUCH & WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT *COOL~WHIP* OTHER THAN IT IS SOOO YUMMY~GOOD !! ; *D~
* GRAB A ZIPLOC & PUT COOL~WHIP INSIDE... CUT~OFF A SMALL/TINY CORNER OF THE BAGGIE & START ICING THOSE PRETTY~LITTLE CUTIES !! ; *)
* CHILL CUPCAKES IN REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER, DEPENDING ON HOW LONG BEFORE YOU ARE GOING TO EAT THEM~UP !!
& WE CAN'T FORGET THE *SPRINKLE~FAIRY*...
THANKS SOOO MUCH MIMI !! ; *D
**SPRINKLES... SPRINKLES... SPRINKLES**

NOW IT'S TIME TO...
GO & GET YOUR GLASS OF MILK ALREADY ~ RICE OR SOY IF YOU PREFER & GET READY FOR SOME *IRIE~RAINBOWLICIOUS* YUMMINESS FOR YOUR TUMMY...
THIS IS RECIPE THAT WAS BORROWED FROM *HERE*... MODIFIED WITH THE *VANILLA* & COOL~WHIP BY ME, OF COURSE !! ENJOY !!! ; *D

MMMMMMM... MMMMMMM... GOOOOD !! ; *)~

& WITH **MANY** THANKS FOR SHARING THIS RECIPE WITH ME... IT WAS SUCH A JOY TO SEE MY LITTLE~MIMI *SMILE* !! ; *)
