Rainbow. Cupcakes - Children Playdate

Today's play date ends our June holiday. Time flies and next week they are going back to school. My girlfriend is so nice to host the lunchie and baking session at her place. And my job, to find a recipe that is simple and do not require any mixer of any kind. 

I came across this smile recipe, did a trial and it taste ok. Just tt a bit drier as I over mix slightly when adding the colourings. We did the batter and let the children mix in the colourings. They piped in the coloured batter and had so much fun.

I just did a 'anyhow' cream cheese frosting with cream cheese, butter and vanilla extract. They piped, top with sprinkles, choc chips and mini cookies. OMG, they had so much fun decorating. All couldn't resist and had 1 Cuppies straight after they are done.

Love the mix of the colours.
