St Patrick's day cupcakes

This St paddy's day we decided to make rainbow cupcakes!
Using a batter recipe for vanilla yellow cake , we dyed various portions of the batter in different bowls and Poured the batter into a cupcake pan by layering the colores with a spoon.

Mmmmm, taste the rainbow!!

Here are some with a buttercream top and just green batter...

And then we decided to make meringue cupcake toppers...

Here's the meringue batter dyed green.
The art of the meringue is simple ...
You need :
2 egg whites
1/2 cup of sugar
And a pinch of cream of tartar
*food coloring (optional)
Beat all the ingredients in your mixer for about 10 minutes or till the eggwhites are very fluffy or in firm peaks and you are ready for piping on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake the meringues at 175* for 2 hours

So Cute and delicious!!!
