Here is another way to make Tie Dye Cupcakes! I made these for Father’s Day and they were a big hit! I made a separate batch for my dad’s party, but they were gobbled down before I could snap a picture. The set pictured is from the party at my in-laws. I put pictures of the different dads in attendance.
How to make tie dye cupcakes
Yellow cake batter
Prepare the cake batter per package directions, or from scratch.
Separate into three different bowls. Add food coloring to each one and mix.
Add cupcake liners to the cupcake pan.
Drizzle the batter colors on in a random style, instead of glopping them area by area. MUCH better effect, more rainbow-y and tie-dye-y.
I wish I could save these and use them for something!
What made my whole day is when my little nieces, Bella and Sarah (4 & 9), followed me around, nudging and whispering to each other “YOU ask her! No, YOU ask her!!”
Finally, Bella says shyly, “Auntie Kathy, can we have another cupcake?” I giggled and said YES, help yourself!! I wish I had a picture of the look on their faces as they ate them, they practically oohed and ahhed in between each bite.
The bottom picture is from the cupcakes my dad ate. He said, “Wow, even the paper looks like tie-dye!”
SCORE! Tie Dye Cupcakes for the win!
