These look really cool cakes!

{preheat oven to 350f}

You’ll need:

1 boxed white cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 can of white frosting (I used Betty Crocker)
variety of Wilton icing colours
12 125ml (4oz) canning jars

My creation

Make the white cake as per the instructions on the box. Then divide the cake mix up into portions (you don’t have to be exact). Add colouring to the cake mix. I used: No Taste Red, Lemon Yellow, Teal, Royal Blue and Violet (most of the colours of the rainbow).

My creation

Add about 1 tsp of each colour into the canning jars. Place the canning jars on a cooking sheet with about 1/4″ of water on it. Bake in the oven at 350f for 25-30 minutes.

Tip: Only fill the jars about 1/2 full. I think mine were too full and many ended up way to big!

Remove from oven and let them cool completely.

My creation

Once cooled remove the tops of the cupcakes to make room for frosting. Ice the cakes with the frosting and top with sprinkles.
