I’ve always wanted to make some rainbow-frosted cupcakes and I finally got to do so for my friend’s birthday! These are vanilla & chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting. Of course, sometimes the prettiest of things take so much work, and even with how simple they seem, they were a lot of prep! I had to make a big batch of buttercream frosting and then divided it up into six different bowls for the colors: red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple. Then I put each color into piping bags and pipped lines of each color onto plastic wrap. Then I rolled it up and put it all into another piping bag and swirled away! So many bowls and so many piping bags!!! But they turned out so beautiful and were delicious!
Here is a visual tutorial that I used to make the rainbow effect:
