Rainbow Cupcakes!

Mix food coloring into the cake mix

This is how the mixed product should look

Mix the colors together. Use a fork to spread the mix.

Finished product, tie-die cupcakes!

Here is a special treat you can make on Fridays with your little ones. Zakariya loved watching the colors mix together in our mixer! He did not have any cupcakes but still enjoyed watching us make them. I tutor one of my younger cousins in Quran reading, we did this as a project together. The idea behind this project was to encourage him to help out his mom in the kitchen... I gave him several examples of the Prophet salalahu alayhi wasalaam doing daily chores in home and even sewing his own clothing.

Over all this project was a hit and my cousin loved biting into the cupcakes and seeing what colors would come next. The only thing I would do differently next time is try to find natural dyes because there is a whole lot of food coloring used in this acitivity.

Try this project and post your pictures, can't wait to see what your cupcakes turn out like.
