This Saturday is my birthday and I have a class full of 20 first graders who are more excited about my upcoming birthday then they are for their own! Every year I make some sort of treat for my class because really, I am always looking for a reason to bake. This year was a bit more challenging with us moving and spending every waking moment packing. ((Okay, I am being a bit dramatic, but sometimes that's what it feels like!)) I decided I would be resourceful and go to the handy dandy cupboard of quick bakes! I generally keep a couple cake mixes on hand, a brownie mix or two, a tub o' frosting and a few other goodies. I settled on yellow cake mix and white frosting because I knew that truly my options were endless. So here is what I had

After I mixed according to the directions on the box, I separated the batter into three separate bowls and started adding food color.

**Oh and side note, these soup spoons are the perfect size for filling cupcake liners!**

Then once that was done I started filling the cupcake tins layering the colors.

Bake, frost and you're done! I don't have a "finished product" picture but trust me, the frosting just didn't compare to the cute cake. That's what I get for using canned frosting!! =)
