  • With your next color, try to spoon it out in a circle. Make a circle with your color, on the out edge of your cupcake, and add a drop in the middle. This will help your spread the color without mixing the two.
  • You can pick up your cupcake tin, and tip it side-to-side to help spread the top layer of color.
  • Use your spoon to fill in the gaps.
  • If it isn’t perfectly covered, don’t worry. Just try to get most of it.
  • Continue, until you have your top color.
  • Bake as cupcake mix directs you. Typical instructions for cupcakes is 350 degrees, 18-22 minutes.
