    Funky Fresh Tie-Dye Cupcakes

    18 Apr
    What is more fun than Tie-Die?! Well, Tie-Die Cupcakes, of course! These colorful cupcakes are the perfect addition to any birthday party. With a simple vanilla base, the recipe is quick and virtually impossible to mess up. Get creative with your own color combinations and make your next party funky fresh!
    Here’s the recipe – Enjoy!
    Tie-Dye Cupcakes
    Makes 15-18 Cupcakes
    You’ll Need:
    ~ 2 cups all-purpose flour
    ~ 1 ½ cups sugar
    ~ 1 tablespoon baking powder
    ~ ½ cup milk
    ~ ¾ cup water
    ~ 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    ~ ½ cup butter, softened
    ~ 3 eggs
    ~ 3 different colors of food coloring
    Directions:

    1. Pre-heat your over to 350 degree
    2. With a whisk, combine flour, sugar, baking powder
    3. Add in the milk and whisk to combine.
    4. Add water, vanilla, butter, and eggs. Combine with an electric mixer then beat two more minutes.
    5. Divide the batter into 3 small bowls
    6. Color each bowl of batter a different color
    7. Line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners
    8. 8. Starting with one color, put a spoonful of batter into each liner
    9. Alternate colors until cupcake liners are ¾ full
    10. Bake at 350 for 12-15 Minutes.

    Vanilla Frosting

    • 2 Sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
    • 4 cups of powdered sugar
    • 2 tbs of vanilla extract
    • 3 colors of food coloring

    In an electric mixer cream the butter until light and fluffy. I usually beat on medium speed for 3-4 minutes.
    Slowly add in one cup of powdered sugar at a time. Mixing in between each addition
    Add in the vanilla extract, mix to combine
    (If your frosting is too thin – add more powder sugar. If your frosting is too thick, add in a tbs of milk.)
    How to decorate with multi-colored frosting

    • Separate the frosting into 3 small bowls. Using food coloring, color each bowl a different color.
    • Cut the tip off your piping bag, insert the piping tip.
    • Use a medium size cup and fold the piping bag over the edges – this makes it easier to fill the piping bag with frosting.
    • Using a spoon or spatula, put one of the colored frostings into the piping bag. Alternate colors until your piping bag is filled with multi-colored frosting.
    • Pipe frosting onto each cupcake. Add sprinkles if you desire.

    There you have it! Let me now f you have any questions.
    Until next time, Stay Sweet!

    I've made those before with Duff's electric colors and they turn out really well. I've just done solid ones as well, mixing and matching the neon colors, and those are really cool too. They were a big hit at nephew's birthday party this summer.

    The tie-dyed one's looked similar to this, but my frosting (homemade buttercream!) was much prettier and colored too.
