Rainbow Cupcakes !

RAINBOW CUPCAKES!

Recipe:
125grams of salted butter, soften
125grams of Castor Sugar
125grams of self-raising flour
2 Eggs
1 tsp of Vanilla Essence
3 Tbsp of Milk
Red, Blue, Green, Yellow Colouring
Cupcake cases of your choice.

Method:

Mix 125grams of Butter and 125 Grams of Caster Sugar together until Fluffy.




Add in 1 egg at a time, Mix well before adding 2nd. (2 eggs needed only)


Also add in flour while mixing in the egg, end result will be like this(shown below)


Then add in 1 tsp of Vanilla Essence and mix well.


Then add in 1 Tbsp of milk at 1 time and mix well and repeat for another 2 more times.


Then you seperate your batter evenly into 4 different bowls to mix all the different colours!


For my red colour, I used my mum's red colouring powder which she uses to make char siew. LOL!

The result of the batter will be hot pinkish colour, but no worries,, when you bake it, the colour will be darker.

Next, Yellow, Im using Egg yolk yellow, you can choose the yellow of your liking.

Very Bright Egg Yolk Yellow



Then Blue, I using Liquid Blue Colour.

Nice Shade of blue.


Lastly, Green :)

Nice anot? :D

Overview of the colours I will be making.

Then you just have to put the batter 1 colour by 1 colour into your cupcake cases.

**TIP: After you put the first layer of batter, you add in the 2nd layer slowly and dip your fingers in water and gently smoothen out the batter with your wet finger to cover the first layer of batter, its tedious work but the results are worth it! :)



For my cupcakes, I have placed Blue first, then Green, then Yellow then Red!
I know they are not exactly even layered yet but im still working on it!
1 thing for sure, Its very exciting to eat this rainbow! Many of my friends and little kids LOVE it!
