Unicorn Poop Cupcakes!!!
Okay, these are adorable rainbow frosting cupcakes too!

The colors swirl and blend to make the most pleasing frosting rainbow!

Step 1: Supplies and Getting Started!

You will need:

1 batch of buttercream frosting

1-2 dozen cupcakes, cooled completely.

Red, Blue and Yellow Food coloring

Icing piping bag and big tip.

I mixed up a big batch of buttercream frosting!
1 cube of butter, 4 cups or 2 lbs of powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp of milk and 1 tsp of vanilla.

I scooped out 3 bowls of vanilla frosting...
added a few drops of red in one bowl...yellow in the next and blue in the last!

I use this gel food coloring set.
There is a huge variety of colors and easy to mix!

This is a great way to do ombre frosting too!

Step 2: Do or Do Not!

Then drop blobs of each color right into your frosting bag.
Basically drop the pink on one side, then the yellow next to it and then the blue in between.

Some people bag each color separately, but I tried that and the color was terrible.

The colors come out separately and don't blend at all. It was a disaster.
You want these colors to mix a little bit to make green, orange and purple.

So I squeezed it out in a new piping bag and that worked wonders.

Step 3: Frosting Time!

The frosting squeezes out to make the perfect colored swirl on top of each cupcake!

Start in a big circle around the top of the cupcake, then swirl in toward the center, slightly overlapping.

Finish it off in the center with a little lift to make the perfect frosting tip.

Practice makes better, so give yourself a little experimental cupcake or 2. (you can eat those to hide the evidence)

Step 4: Perfect Way to Serve!

At parties, I love to fill little cups with candy...

Then let everyone stick their cupcake on top for easy carrying.

Adorable and tasty!
