Double Rainbows by the Dozen

Tonight looked like this:


Which puffed up into these:

Which @missallisong & I made into these:

 Which culminated in this...

...in my stomach.

Unfortunately, none of my photos really indicate how beautiful the cupcakes' insides were. Or how delicious they were. But they looked a little bit like The Dainty Squid's, albeit with a less-vibrant purple. Our purple was a little muddy but, you know, still really delicious. I brought five home in a shoebox but gave one to my cab driver along the way. He, too, agreed on the deliciousness factor.

In baking these - OK, co-baking them, really - I checked something else off my 101 in 1,001 List. Did I mention that they were beautiful & delicious? These last D.C. days sure are full of win.

I love rainbow cupcakes!!! I think you get a more vibrant color when you use gel versus regular dye.

Those look delicious. Did you use a pastry bag to frost them? The swirl is perfect. =)
