Feeling Groovy

Make your cupcakes psychedelic. I borrowed this technique from Betty Crocker: Divide white frosting among three bowls. Dye one blue, one yellow, one red. Alternating colours, dollop heaping teaspoonfuls into a piping bag fitted with a large starburst tip. Pipe frosting onto each cupcake in swirled circles, starting at the rim and working inwards. You can pipe psychedelic frosting onto cakes, too. Even easier psychedelic frosting for lazier cake decorators, pg. 564 in 12,167 Kitchen and Cooking Secrets.
