| March 26, 2020

Here’s a fun, retro-inspired snack using a white cake mix and neon food coloring!

Tie-Dyed Cupcakes


1 regular size package white cake mix
1-1/2 cups lemon-lime soda
Neon food coloring
1 – 16 oz. can vanilla frosting
Colored sprinkles


~Preheat oven to 350°.

~In a large bowl, combine cake mix and soda. Beat on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium 1 minute. Divide batter among five bowls. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl; stir just until combined.

~Drop a spoonful of one color of batter into each of 18 paper-lined muffin cups. Layer with remaining colored batter until muffin cups are two-thirds full. Bake 18-20 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean).

~Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

~Frost tops and decorate with sprinkles.

~Makes 1-1/2 dozen.
