White cake mix (I used Betty Crocker)
Red, Blue, Green and Yellow food coloring
Favorite white icing

Preheat the oven according to box instructions. Prepare 16 muffin cups with cupcake liners.

Mix the cake mix according to box instructions and evenly divide the batter between 6 small bowls. Color the 6 bowls as follows:

Purple - 9 drops of red and 6 drops of blue

Blue - 12 drops of blue

Green - 12 drops of green

Yellow - 12 drops of yellow

Orange - 12 drops of yellow and 4 drops of red

Red - 18 drops of red

Combine well

Keeping the colors in the same order as listed above, divide each color between the muffin cups, starting with purple, then blue, then green....etc etc until you have finished with red.

Bake according to the instructions on the box

Allow to cool completely and then frost with some white icing....making a cloud on top of your rainbow.
