Rainbow Cupcakes

This weekend I made rainbow cupcakes found on my favorite site...you guessed it: Our Best Bites!

1 white cake mix
2 eggs
1 C sour cream (I didn't have a full cup in my fridge, but they were still moist and yummy)
1/2 C milk
1/3 C vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients and mix well.

Divide the batter into separate bowls and add your favorite colors. I use Wilton's for almost every batter, frosting, and icing I color.

I chose four different colors, but you could easily do more.

I added about 1/2-3/4 tablespoon of each color per cupcake. I did one color at a time so I didn't have to keep washing my tablespoon.

Bake at 350 for 15-18 minutes. Mine were done in 15.

Now it's time for the best part...frosting!

I used and doubled this recipe and it was so good. You don't need to double it, but I wanted to pipe the frosting, so I used a lot more (and used it all too!)

Add a little sprinkles and you're good to go!
