While making the cake batter for Deeds birthday party I decided to try out a new recipe. What I should have realized while mixing it and it was filling up the entire bowl is that I was making WAY too much. Apparently I made the “wedding cake” recipe so we had a ton left over.
We decided to not only make cupcakes but let the kids play with coloring in the batter of each cupcake. Deeds thought it was the best thing ever. I would dip a toothpick into the coloring and then he would circle it around the cupcake. I never thought it would be so much fun. He tested every sample color I got to make his fondant for the cake.
When all was said and done we made some Nutella butter-cream icing for the top and they were so yummy. My mistake allowed us to taste the cake before serving it to everyone at his party. It was fun to bite into them and have the middles be the bright vibrant colors!
