Easy-to-make Tie Dye Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Every Saturday I have to bake a little something and bring it by the leasing office. I enjoy this since it gives me a chance to bake cupcakes and other sweets which I normally don’t like to keep around the apartment. I made a white cake batter to be used in regular sized Tye-Dye cupcakes. Tye-Dye cupcakes totally beat buying a boxed ‘rainbow chip’ cake mix. The colors are pretty as you can see (click on the picture for a larger image), and each cupcake looks different

Go ahead and invest in a pack of food coloring gel, they last for a long time! I had left over Ghirardelli white chocolate that I used to make a white chocolate frosting. I put a monster amount of frosting on each cupcake, but so does Sprinkles Cupcakes and they always have a line out the door.

Tie Dye Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Try making Tie Dye Cupcakes to celebrate your next party or special occasion. They will be the talk of the event. These cute cupcakes are a perfect addition to any table. You can make them using food coloring or a mix of both. To get the tie dye effect, you can use a disposable pastry bag with the colored food coloring. If you don't want to use a disposable pastry bag, you can also use ziploc bags to create the tie dye effect. To create the look, simply drag a skewer through the batter in a swirling motion. Don't overmix the colors.

White Cake Batter (homemade or boxed)

  • At least 5 colored food gels I used pink, purple, red, blue, dark green, neon green and yellow Divide the cake batter into 5 bowls or however many colors you have and color the batter until it is the desired color. Grease cupcake wrappers and add a bit of each batter. I like to make each cupcake different looking by starting and ending each one with different colors. Use a skewer or toothpick and swirl each cupcake only once. You don’t want to mix the colors. Bake your cupcakes like you normally would and let cool.

If you want to give your guests a colorful treat at your next party, consider making your own Tie-Dyed Cupcakes. These delicious little treats are perfect for any birthday party, theme party, or backyard get-together. The best way to make tie-dyed cupcakes is to start with a white cake mix. Once it’s mixed together, add in a few drops of food coloring. Mix the batter until it resembles the desired shade, then carefully pour the batter into the cupcake liners. Repeat the process until you’ve used all of the batter. Bake the tie-dyed cupcakes for 18 to 21 minutes or until they’ve reached your desired color.

If you don’t have enough cake mix to make the entire batch, you can combine two or more different colors and use the leftover mix to create different colored cupcakes. Then, mix the blue and red cake mix together to make purple cupcake liners. Next, use a toothpick to swirl the colors together on top of the cupcakes. This is a good tip if you don’t want your cupcakes to have a frosting. The toothpick should come out clean.
