Luckily, I did make edible rainbow cupcakes! But I would probably never make them the same way...ever.again.
Start with a box of cake mix. Mix the ingredients together (follow instructions on the box).

After baking, let cool completely-then frost. I like to spoon my canned frosting into a ziploc bag, snip a bottom corner, the squeeze the frosting on the cupcake like you were using a pastry bag.
I did mention that each cupcake is a rainbow, right? Well check out the varieties:
I do have to tell you that while making these little cakes, my daughter (the birthday girl) was watching me...and after a few minutes of layering batter into tiny cups, she says, "Mommy, you are doing too much!" Bless her little heart...she was so very right-and she would have been fine if I made every cupcake pink in color (and even happier if the frosting was purple).
Oh the things we do for our kids...even if they could care less.
Truly, I must be insane!
How about you? What crazy things have you done for your child's/spouse's birthday?
