- 1 white cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 C sour cream
- 1/2 C milk
- 1/3 C vegetable oil
Divide batter according to how many colors you are using.
Use food coloring to color batter to desired intensity. Wilton brand gel colors have the brightest colors and wont thin your batter.
To get a layered stripe like I used, you'll want to put a spoonful of each color in the cupcake one at a time. The batter is thick, so it won't spread on it's own. A great tip is to set out a little bowl of water where you're working. Dip your finger in the water and then gently spread the batter out. The water will make it so the batter doesn't stick to your fingers. (I thank Christy for such great instructions because this was perfect!)
Bake them according to the package directions, until a toothpick comes out dry.
Frost with your favorite frosting.
We couldn't wait for frosting!
