Get in me...

Sundays are my only day off most weeks. So, I usually try to get some errands done, some cleaning and then have some fun. Yesterday, I just decided to hang out at home. The Boyfriend got home from work at around 3 PM (his schedule during the weekends is 4 AM - 1 PM but he usually stays late and picks up over time) and I asked if he wanted to go do anything. He said not really, which I figured considering I believe he put in a 60 hour work week. I told him I actually didn't want to go do anything either and he smiled and looked relieved. After I got done watching some playoff hockey between the Red Wings and the Sharks with the boyfriend, I decided I'd go bake something I'd been planning to bake for a couple weeks now.

Guess what I baked?

Nope, not my rainbow cake.

But close.

Rainbow cupcakes. ;)

I used a pastry bag to do the frosting. I'd never used one before and that was not only my first attempt at using the bag but also my first attempt at multi-colored frosting. So, I only did half a dozen of the cupcakes with multi-colored frosting in case I some how messed it up. They didn't come out exactly as I wanted them to but I do like how they look. Next time, they'll look better for sure.

I just did plain vanilla frosting and multi-colored sprinkles on the rest of the cupcakes.

All of the cupcakes are rainbow cupcakes, though.

This is what they look like.....

If you want to see a couple more pictures of these babies, go check out my Tumblr page.

These are seriously fun to make. A little time consuming but not too bad. Definitely fun to do and they come out looking so freaking cool it's hard to care about how long it takes to do. Now if I could just get people willing to pay me for baking stuff for them. ;)

Happy Monday!
