These out-of-this-world Galaxy Cupcakes are a take on the popular rainbow cupcake without the stress of ensuring perfect layers of colour!
Of course, we always want it easy peasy..but still delicious!
Preheat oven to 180°
Using a hand or stand mixer cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Add egg and mix well
Add flour, milk, and vanilla and beat on medium speed until well combined.
Divide the mixture into 4 bowls. Check the back of the food colour box for instructions on mixing pastel colours and colour each bowl of the mixture a different colour.
Place white cupcake cases in a cupcake tin and divide each bowl of coloured cake mix between them, one colour at a time layered on top of each other.
Bake for 15 to 20 mins or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely.
Beat the icing sugar and butter on med-low heat until well combined about 5 minutes.
Turn speed to low and beat in milk and vanilla. Once incorporated turn the speed up to high and beat until light and fluffy. At least 5 minutes.
Add different food colour to four separate points in the frosting and gently swirl with a skewer.
Place the frosting in a piping bag and pipe over the cupcakes.
Definitely a great treat to whip up for kids parties!
