Rainy days = cupcakes

I HATE RAINY DAYS! I've been cooped up inside all day :( Sooooo I decided to make cupcakes! The recipe I made isn't in the cupcake book that I just bought cuz I left that at my boyfriend's house, so I found a cute idea online

Let me just say that the rainbow layers took FOREVER. They look simple enough, right? Well I split the batter into 6 different bowls and added drops of food coloring in them. Then I transferred them into separate ziplock bags, cut open a small corner of the bag, and piped each color into layers. I decided to pipe the batter in because it's less messy than pouring it in and getting it on the sides of the cupcake paper. What took forever was spreading the colors out evenly around the edges and in the middle. I guess it doesn't have to be all that perfect, but I wanted to make sure I had enough batter to go around. My brother and his girlfriend did help though since they were intrigued. My dad helped too. He wanted to mix the food coloring haha.
