Batter Up! Colourful Cupcakes!
Tonight I played with the colours of our favourite Major League Baseball team: The New York Mets! Orange and Blue were the colours of choice!!
So much fun.
Make your favourite white or vanilla cake batter. (Boxed cake mix is just fine)
Divide the batter into different bowls, one bowl per colour. Add a healthy dab of gel colouring (I used Wilton) and mix until the colour is well distributed.
Alternate colours into your cake pan or cupcake tins.
Swirl with a toothpick.
Bake as normal and allow to cool.
Mix up or favourite icing (or use a container of white icing)
Prepare an icing bag with a swirly type tip and paint the inside seams with gel colouring. I used a wooden skewer and that worked perfectly. Make sure to get more colouring than you think you will need into the seams.
The boys just came home from their concert and were giddy with joy about the Mets colours....
Until next time, stay warm and eat well. (Stay dry)
