Monday Munchies: Rainbow Cupcakes

This week is not so much a recipe as an idea.  For St. Patrick's Day I made these rainbow cupcakes and they were a huge hit with the family.

Mix up your favorite white cake recipe or box mix. 
Divide the batter into six bowls. 
Put food coloring in each bowl to correspond with the colors of the rainbow.  Red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet.  (Yes, I skipped indigo.)  I used gel food coloring but you could use the liquid colors and just follow the chart on the back of the package for orange and purple.
Layer the colored batter into muffin cups in the order of a rainbow.  I started with red on the bottom but it would be fine to go from violet up to red.
Bake as directed by your recipe.
Allow to cool completely.
Top with a cloud of whipped cream and enjoy.
