Rainbow of cupcakes

Look at Super Sugar Star's rainbow of cupcakes! So much better than a birthday cake!

    My only question is:

    Will there be fights over the “rarer” colors? My child isn’t old enough yet that I might have run into this one personally, but does anyone with older children have an instinct on whether that might happen?

    Looks really snazzy, though!

    Just a word of warning: Red frosting is startlingly hard to make, if you’re doing it from scratch. I did an Elmo cake last year for my three-year-old son, and an entire bottle of red food coloring only turned the buttercream pink. I ended up blending in crushed strawberries and beet juice. This year, I made a train cake with caboose. I mixed my own blue and green, but bought pre-made red.

    We made an Eric Carle Very Hungry Caterpillar with cupcakes for a two year old’s birthday, using only a dozen cupcakes. I frosted them all white, then used colored sugar to sprinkle each a light color. Be aware that some of those frostings are pretty disgusting when they show up in a diaper. Blue especially. I won’t even get into the health aspect of those colors!

    If you do want a dark color, like red or blue, buy paste food colors. They require much less without watering down the frosting. They can be found in the baking/cake decorating area of a craft store. Still disgusting, but easier…
