For the cake you'll need:
1 box white cake mix - I used Duncan Hines moist deluxe-
1 C. of plain non-fat yogurt
1/2 C. Milk
1/3 C. veggie oil
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
Red blue yellow and green food gels or dyes
And for the Buttercream frosting you'll need:
3 C. of powdered sugar
1 C. ( 2 sticks ) of unsalted butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. of milk
- Combine cake mix, eggs, yogurt,milk,oil and vanilla in a large bowl until all ingredients are incorporated.
- Divide batter in five different bowls and dye each one a different color. Red, Orange , Yellow etc.
- Layer into lined cupcake pans starting with red - I used a little less than a tsp for each color . Bake at 350 for 18-22 mins.
For the icing:
Cream butter and slowly add powdered sugar, beat for about 3-4 min after all the sugar has been added until slightly fluffy. Then mix in milk and vanilla.
Frost the cupcakes whenever they cool completely .
You could also dye the cupcakes your school or team colors!!
