My friend Katy and one of the rainbow cupcakes I made just for her. This picture makes me so happy. I love it for two reasons. One, Katy is of one of my favorite people. Katy is creative, fun, very smart and a great friend. She is a photographer in NYC. (Although she is modest and will tell you that she just works at a portrait studio and does not particularly love living there.)

And the other reason I love this picture? Rainbow cupcake!!! It was really fun to see everyone's reaction to the cupcakes. Even the waitresses commented on them. Maybe I'm a little bit vain for loving the attention but it sure was fun. :) That night Katy and I had a totally unplanned cupcake trade. She made the most delicious Snickerdoodle cupcakes! From scratch! From Bakerella's recipe I believe. I literally licked the cupcake wrapper when I finished eating one of them. They were THAT good!

And here is a link to the recipe for rainbow cupcakes

Linking this to Just for the JOY. Because Katy and rainbow cupcakes bring me joy. Especially Katy.

>Good, True & Beautiful

I really should make cupcakes more often. Because really who doesn't love a cupcake?

I would have been totally PROUD if i had made those awesome cupcakes. I would have been strutting my stuff all over the place, showing my culinary prowess... You GO Girl!!

Katy said...

Thanks for all the kind words. You make me happy too :)

On that note I need to know if you used white cake or yellow cake because I bought the stuff to make cupcakes that, though they won't look as amazing, could potentially taste as good. Then I started in on the frosting with a spoon so I'll have to buy another can. I bought yellow, is that right?

Amy said...

Thank you everyone! :)

Katy, I used a white cake mix. Yellow will probably work but might affect how your colors look a little bit. Try it and let me know. And be sure to take pictures!

Hi Amy! This is totally random!!!... I saw your review on my Facebook page {My Belle Boutique} & I noticed that you referred a friend to my shop and she placed an order! {It was a while ago.} I wanted to just send you a message on FB but your privacy settings don't allow me to do such a thing! So I clicked on your blog link & here I am. I just wanted to let you know that I give a referral incentive when you refer someone to my shop who also places an order. So if you decide to shop at My Belle Boutique in the future, send me a message on Etsy & I will give you 15% your entire order, no matter how big or small :) P.S. I made these rainbow/tie-dyed cupcakes for my son's 3rd birthday a couple days ago! How funny!
