Ingredients:
1 box white cake mix + all of the ingredients on the box
Food Coloring: Red, Yellow, Blue, Green
1 tub of frosting

Directions:
Preheat oven according to cake mix directions.
Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.
Mix cake mix according to package directions.
Line up 5 small bowls and divide batter between the bowls evenly.
We used bright colors, so we only added 3-5 drops per bowl of each color so that they would be light.
One bowl was pink: 3 drops of red
One bowl was yellow: 5 drops of yellow
One bowl was blue: 5 drops of blue
One bowl was green: 5 drops of green
One bowl was purple: 5 drops of red, 3 drops of blue
Make sure you thoroughly mix all the food coloring into the batter.

Starting with the purple, add a tablespoon full of batter into each cupcake liner.
Then blue, then red, then yellow, then green.
