Last week I had a ridiculous urge to bake cupcakes. My original intention was to make my own funfetti cupcakes, but after adding the sprinkles into the batter, ALL
of the food coloring rubbed off, turning the batter a faint grey. That's
when I had the idea to turn these into something new!
I used Wilton Gel colors in purple and pink. My purple gel had started to congeal, so I used a tiny amount of almond milk to get the color out of it. The result was beautiful purple cupcakes and icing.
You don't have to go fancy with the mix either. I used a store-bought white mix and added the zest of 1 lemon to give it more depth of flavor.
I've got one more box of cake mix sitting on the counter. I wonder what I'll make next? Maybe some Jake cupcakes using carrot cake or orange zest.
