Tie-dye cupcakes

My boss (or HBIC, as we like to call heršŸ˜‰) had her birthday this past week. Since I have virtually no birthday recognition thanks to being born in December, I like to celebrate other people’s birthdays extra hard. Plus I really like the excuse to have a party at work instead of, you know, working.
I was going to write a long and boring detailed post telling you how to re-create the amazing cupcakes I made. But that would probably take about as long as it took me to make the dang things. So here are some pictures of the process with some tips and tricks to help you follow along:

1) buy a box of cake mix//make your own if you are more of a successful adult than I amIMG_2597.JPG

2)divide mixed mix (that’s awkward, sorry ’bout it) into 5 bowls, and dye four of them whatever colors your little heart desires. *when baked my purple looked a little more..gray. If you use purple maybe make it a little more purple-y than mine.

3) layer colors as shown or however you want. Then take a toothpick and swirl!
