Rainbow cupcakes


These pretty rainbow cupcakes filled with cream are deceptively easy to make. Although I do not use food colors in my cooking, I made an exception for this one, as these were irresistibly cute and fun to make and I guess it can't hurt using it just once. I came across the idea in Family Fun magazine and I had to try it. 
1 pack store bought white cake/cupcake mix with filling
Food colors
1 tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 cup vanilla soy milk

I followed the directions in the cake box but instead of 1 egg I used the flaxseed and soy milk mixture. I tried this for the first time and was surprised how well it worked. The cupcakes were moist and fluffy and tasted just as good. 
So to make the cupcakes prepare the batter as per directions and divide the batter equally in a few bowls, depending on the number of colors you are using. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners and add a spoonful of cake batter layering it with different colors. If using the cake mix with filling, then squeeze the cream filling in before the final two layers. Bake as per instructions.
