Open your pack of cake mix, pour into a mixing bowl, and combine the ingredients listed on the box as directed. Pre-heat your oven to the directed temperature.
Divide the cake mix into 4 bowls.
Add a few drops of food coloring to each bowl. I used neon colors by McCormick, which created pretty pastels.
Make sure to mix each bowl of cake mix thoroughly so that you get evenly colored cupcakes.
Line your cupcake pan with cupcake liners and start spooning in the colored cupcake mix. I layered mine with about 3-4 colors per cup.
Bake your cupcakes for 20-25 minutes.
Let your cupcakes cool and remove them from the pan.
I had extra mix leftover and made bite-sized cupcakes with a mini cupcake pan. If you don't own one, use the leftover mix to make a few more regular-sized cupcakes.
Frost the tops of your cupcakes. Now they're ready to eat!
