We had fun making these simple cupcakes. It was about $5 for the whole schbang, and we have more food coloring and cupcake liners for next time. I tried to make it a learning experience for my 3 year old, we counted: the eggs to make the batter, the drops of food coloring, the cupcake liners, the cupcakes. She enjoyed watching the colors magically appear as we stirred the frosting. This gets high marks for a simple rainy day activity.
