I think the cake would have looked fine, if I had left it at this.
But I didn't... I tried to get the whole picture on there!
I stopped here, I could tell it wasn't working out. Oh well. It tasted GREAT. My boys never complained!
Thanks Ashley for teaching us! It was a GREAT class!

We made Empanadas, Chicken stuffed potato balls and Fire and Ice sauce. YUMMY! And so fun to cook with the Hubby! I LOVED IT! I can't wait to find another recipe he will get excited about, so we can cook together again!

Here are my six colors. I didn't follow the food coloring guide from Family Fun. I used Wilton Gels instead of the liquid. My red was a liquid, and it turned out pink. I even added extra. But the other colors came out VERY vibrant. I was pleased.
Here is a look at the layers. This was tedious work. My back was sore, and it took a lot longer than I had expected. One big cake in a Spring form pan would have been better. Layering 16 cupcakes was too long.
Here's a look at the cupcakes when they came out of the oven. Cool Red color on top, despite the pink batter.
Now... taking them out of their paper liner was a trick! I only ended up with about 7 cupcakes that had flat bottoms. I almost think that you need spray the liners with non-stick spray. And some of the liners bunched. So they left creases in the cupcake. See two pictures above for an example. You can see the gap between the liner and the cupcake pan. Anyway... those ones were harder because of the way the cake baked around the bunched part. Too much? Sorry, let's move on...

*Ready-to-eat cereal is the No. 1 source of whole grains in a child’s diet today.
