Funfetti Tye-Dye Cupcakes

24 May

I had been wanting to do this tye-dye frosting technique for so long but it I was always too lazy to mix up all the colors. By chance, I happened to have leftover frosting from the baby shower cake that I had just dumped into a Tupperware together with the hopes of using it with future cake balls where the color didn’t make a difference. However, I put it to a much better use with these homemade Funfetti cupcakes. The occasion? Lolli’s first birthday party of course!! Oh, and note to mom because I know you’re reading this, when you gave me your credit card to go to BJ’s that one day I might have bought a kibbutz sized jar of rainbow sprinkles..thanks love ya..

Frosting Technique:
Basically you just separate frosting into different colors and try to put a different color on each side of the frosting bag so it comes out as a swirl..wooo..groovy…
