The first attempt was hundred and thousands cupcakes based on this photo:
Mine didn't turn out quite so well though!
The hundreds and thousands lost most of their colour when I mixed them into the batter, and they just came out a little crunchy :S
Once the icing was on though they looked great! I left a little space round the edge so you can see the cake with the colours in underneath.
I also had a go at making rainbow cupcakes (bit different to my previous rainbow cupcakes) based on an idea from My Chic Life.
I made A LOT of mess spooning the different mixtures into the cases!
Food colouring gets everywhere!
They didn't come out so great :S but the blue worked well at least! The purple didn't come out at all. I think I should've used more food colouring in the other colours.
As with the hundred and thousand ones, they look much better with the icing on! I used Rachel's idea over on My Chic Life of making the icing look like clouds. I used buttercream icing with a high proportion of icing sugar to butter to make it more white.
