Tie Dye Cake

 I picked this little skill up from a cousin of mine and I LOVE it.  How cute and creative are tie dye cupcakes/cakes?  You can easily personalize the colors for a party's theme, bridal colors, etc.
 I separated my prepared (and rather white) cake batter, then dyed it with food coloring.  I made this batch for a Valentine activity, but I have also done rainbow ones.  You could pick whatever colors you like.
 Just spoon the batter into your pan/cupcake wrappers.  It doesn't need to look pretty.
Once baked, they look like this!  I also took it to the next level and dyed my frosting.  Again, I just filled my piping bag spoonful by spoonful with the different icing colors.  As a tip--refrigerate your icing BEFORE filling your piping bag as well as AFTER so the colors don't blend themselves together too quickly.


  1. What a great idea. How fun!

  2. I love the tie dyed frosting to go with! Super-cute!

  3. I love the idea : I'll make some for my son's birthday party, next wednesday... Your cupcakes must have been really yummy !!!

  4. @ Martina--
    They were delicious! I filled them with a raspberry/cream cheese filling as well. I also make my cupcakes with Jello pudding (I think it keeps a regular boxed cake mix more moist).

  5. These beautiful and lovely cakes! I want to learn how to make it so that I can eat as much as I like.
