Colorful Tie Dye Cup Cakes

A month or so ago, my mom came home with a cake mix to make a tie dye cake.  It had everything I needed in it (mix and dyes).  It was a Duffy cakes mix, she got from Michaels, however, if you had a white cake and dye you could make this without the kit.  She thought it looked cool and wanted me to make it.  I just now got around to using it.  It is rare for me to bake anything anymore for my house, so I decided to make my family cupcakes and practice my icing skills for a job coming up this Friday. (My first cupcake order… I am nervous haha)

The kit came with blue, yellow, and red dye and then instructions on how many drops of each color to make an orange, red (pink), yellow, green, blue, and purple.  You combine the ingredients like normal and then divide the cake evenly into six bowls and then pour a little of each color into each cupcake holder.  So I did a little pink, then a little orange, etc. until the cupcake holder was 3/4 full.  You DO NOT mix the colors together at all.  After you layer the colors, you just level it out by banging it on the counter, and bake. They turned out really cool.
