Besides Lego Cakes, I can’t think of a better birthday surprise for the Curbly inclined as these Color Wheel Cupcakes. They’re easy to make and even simpler to decorate!
1 2-layer-size package of red velvet, chocolate, white or yellow cake mix.
1 16-ounce can of white frosting
Candy-coated red, orange, yellow, green and blue milk chocolate pieces. Decorative sugar in the colors. Paint strips–courtesy of the paint store.
Prepare cake mix according to directions for cupcakes, using paper baking cups. Bake according to directions; cool.
Spread frosting on cupcakes and decorate with colored sugar and corresponding chocolate pieces. Group similarly colored paint strips on a platter–or just on the table–and arrange cupcakes on top as shown.
