Recipe For Fun Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Recipe For Fun Blog Hop! If you came from Sarabeth, you are in the right place! If you need to start at the beginning go to Joy's Life to see all the amazing projects!

I have to start my post with an apology...yesterday did not go as planned at all! It started with me having to rush my son to the emergency med clinic for a personal medical problem...he is fine now & heeling but needless to say, we were there most of the day and then had to get prescriptions and by the time I got home I had the beginnings of a migraine! I took some medication and rested but was not able to make my cupcakes that I wanted for this hop =/ I have made them before and love the recipe so trust me, they are delicious!! I was glad that I had at least started my project the day before, but was not able to do as much as I wanted! I am so sorry that this project is not complete but I know that my kids always come first!

So with that being said, here is my project for this hop! I chose to use "Happy Cake Day" from the set Yummy Puns...I wanted to make these tie-dye cupcakes....I made something like this on Easter too! They are so much fun to make and they are different every time!

And here are my cupcake containers...

How fun are these?? I found these at my local grocery store in a package of 4! Wouldn't these be a cute little gift for anyone's bday? (Just imagine them with a cupcake actually IN them!!) I wanted to decorate the tops and thought it would be cool to stamp "Happy Cake Day" all over but geez it was hard! SO I took my stamp OFF the acrylic block, stuck it to my finger and stamped! EASY!! And using your finger you can manipulate the stamp and curve it around any surface!! It worked so well!! A couple of them "double stamped" but it kind of adds character! And of course, I always's not's handmade!! :) On the pink one I used Perfect Pearl pen to add my black dots!

And here is a close-up of the amazing stamps!

And here is the recipe...

1 box Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® white cake mix Water, vegetable oil and egg whites called for on cake mix box Betty Crocker® gel food colors or paste food colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple) 

2 containers (1 lb each) Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy white frosting
1.        Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Place white paper baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
·         Make cake batter as directed on box for cupcakes, using water, oil and eggs. Divide batter evenly among 6 medium bowls. Add a different food color to each bowl to make red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Place 1 level teaspoon of each color batter into each muffin cup, layering colors in order of rainbow—red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Do not stir! Each cup will be about half full.
·         Bake 17 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove cupcakes from pans; place on cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
·         Meanwhile, divide frosting evenly among 3 medium bowls. Tint 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 blue with food colors. Refrigerate about 30 minutes.
·         In large (16-inch) disposable decorating bag fitted with #6 star tip, place spoonfuls of each color of frosting side by side, alternating colors and working up from tip of bag. Do not mix colors together. Starting at 12 o’clock on outer edge of each cupcake and using constant pressure on bag, pipe frosting clockwise for 3 rotations, working toward center and ending in small peak. Store loosely covered.

    Hope you enjoyed my project today! Next head on over to the super talented Jennie! Thanks for stopping by! :)  

Until next time... ♥ Laura ♥

How fun is that cake recipe -- so colorful! Believe me, I COMPLETELY understand about emergency room visits with our kids, and then migraines too. UGH. Those cupcake containers are SWEEEEEET!! I've never seen them before. Now I'll have to keep my eyes peeled in the grocery store, you say?! WOW! FUN.

Hope all is well with your son now. I was with my granddaughter (19 months old) in the ER the night before last .... nursemaid's elbow, who knew!? ... but she's fine now too. It never ends! :)

I don't know if I like the cupcake better or those amazing little holders. Great job on those and what a great idea to stamp using your fingers. I'll have to try that myself.
