Taste the Rainbow

I first saw this on the Facebook page of a high school friend and I thought, "I can do that!!". (Thanks Kristy!) What a fun project for kids on a rainy day! You'll need:

White Cake Mix
1 1/4 c. water
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 egg whites
Food coloring
Cool Whip

Mix the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs. Divide batter evenly into six bowls. Add food coloring according to list below.

Drop cupcake paper into muffin pan. Evenly distribute the purple batter into 18 muffin cups, smooth over with a spoon. Distribute blue, then green and so on (smoothing the batter between colors). Divide the cake mix sparingly because it adds up fast, by the time you get to red, the cups are full!!

Bake the cupcakes at 350F for 20 minutes. Before serving, drop a dollop of cool whip (cloud) on the cupcake.

For rainbow colors:
purple: 9 drops of red, 6 drops of blue food coloring
blue: 12 drops of blue food coloring
green: 12 drops of green food coloring
yellow: 12 drops of yellow food coloring
orange: 12 drops of yellow, 4 drops of red food coloring
red: 20 drops of red food coloring

Seriously, the hardest part of this recipe was getting the toddler to stop licking the batter while I wasn't looking.
