Cook Time:
25 minutes
Servings:
Makes 10

Ingredients

  • 110g unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 110g self-raising flour
  • red, blue and yellow gel food colouring
  • sprinkles (optional)

For the buttercream

  • 150g butter, softened
  • 300g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and fill a muffin tin with 10 cups.
  • Step 2: Using an electric mixer, combine the butter, vanilla and caster sugar until light and airy. Incorporate the eggs one at a time, scraping the edges of the bowl between each addition.
  • Step 3: Incorporate the flour and a pinch of salt until blended. Divide the mixture into five bowls and tint each bowl differently using a drop of food colouring. We used red, yellow, green, blue and purple as the shades.
  • Step 4: Begin with the violet hue on the far end of the rainbow (in this case, purple). Divide 1 tsp of the mixture into each cupcake case evenly, with a piping bag or the back of a spoon. Place 1 tsp of the following color on top of that and spread it out without mixing the colors. Continue until all the shades are used up and you have an even layer of red sitting on top.
  • Step 5: Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of each cake comes out dry. Allow cooling fully on a wire cooling rack.
  • Step 6: Begin by creaming the butter until light and fluffy. Slowly add in the icing sugar, vanilla extract and a pinch of salt and blend until combined completely. Finally, mix in the milk until fully incorporated.
  • Step 7: Use a circular-shaped nozzle to pipe the buttercream onto the cupcakes or spread it using a palette knife. Decorate with sprinkles, if desired.
