Rainbow Cupcakes

Today I will be sharing with you a simple, yet special recipe that I’ve been using for years. The rainbow cupcake is basically a Vanilla scented cake that I’ve coloured it in the beautiful shade of rainbow.

So, get your bake face on and let’s get started shall we?

To make this really pretty cupcake, all you need are,



-130g butter ,softened

-125g castor sugar

-1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Essence


-2 eggs


-188g self raising flour, sifted


-125 ml milk

-Colourings of your choice

1.Preheat oven at 160C/320 f. This recipe makes 12 standard size cupcakes or 24 mini size cupcakes.

2.Creamtill pale,light and fluffy.

3.Crack in B one at a time. (1 minute/egg)

Mix until well incorporated

4.Fold in half of C. Do not over fold the batter or your cupcake will have a dry and rough texture.

Fold flour until just combine.

5.Next, mix in half of D.

Mix in milk until incorporated

5.Repeat step 4 & 5 with the remaining ingredients. When you have a smooth batter, divide your batter into 5 equal portions and colour it with your desired colour.Feel free to add more colours!

Let the fun begin!
Trust me, you do not want to overflow the cupcake liners!

6.Now, fill your prepared cupcake liners with even layers of batter 3/4 full. Your cupcake is ready when a skewer inserted in the middle of the cupcake comes out clean without any batter. It takes around 13-15 minutes for a mini size liner or 17-20 minutes for a standard size liner.

7.Leave your cupcakes to cool completely before frosting it.


8.Use frosting of your choice. For this one, I have used the Italian Meringue Buttercream.

& there you have it!

Till my next post 🙂
