Rainbow cupcakes

October 13, 2009

My mom asked if I was interested in teaching a cupcake baking class for the month of Nov/Dec. Of course I’m interested!! And it’s a source of income!! Please excuse the excitement. I get overly excited about getting money!! Money is hard to come by, you know, when you’re unemployed, and spending your allowance on weekend exercise classes and meeting up for dinners and whatnot. Speaking of exercise, I’ve yet to achieve my 2009 new year’s resolutions of losing weight AND attaining a hot bod. It’s kind of hard to achieve that when I lack self control over desserts! It’s simply shameful, I know, and yet, I choose to believe that I’ve reached a fitness plateau at the same time. Ohhh but I’ve digressed enough.

So anyway I was planning to teach this, so I’ve gotta try it out first, just in case I don’t get it right! I don’t know if it was beginner’s luck or what, but it turned out pretty well, I must say.

Isn’t it pretty??? There’s just something about  rainbows that makes me smile. No wonder kids paint rainbows when they want to depict happiness.

Somewhereeee… over the rainbowwww.. blue birds fly~~~

Okay stop it!

Yes I know there are only 3 colours to the cupcake, but I don’t have that many food colourings!

I absolutely love the vibrancy! My new Panasonic Lumix rocks! This picture wasn’t even edited. How great is that?

I don’t really like liquid food colouring. They ruin the texture of everything, especially frostings! The best would be gel colouring, but they are darn expensive, and I only have 1, in pink. Even paste would be pretty good, but I only had blue. I need to go to a bake store to stock up!

Aren’t these adorable? I figured since I was baking colourful cupcakes, the usual liners just don’t fit into the theme. I love these!! Got them from Cold Storage, a bit expensive, but hey! When else can you get a Twister Mat themed liners?

All done, and freshly baked from the oven!

They look like Play-Do, don’t they???!!

Even the crumbs are pretty!
