Tie Dye Easter Cupcakes

One of my kids favorite things to do for Easter is dye Easter eggs. It is an absolute hot mess but they love it so it pretty much is a free for all! Some things I just have to let go and let them do it. Carving pumpkins, gingerbread houses, and easter eggs are those free for all messy activities. 
I thought that there was nothing more fitting then tie dye cupcakes for a treat while dying eggs. This recipe uses simple ingredients but are super fun! 
Make a a box of white cake mix according to the directions on back and then take about a cup of the mix and put it in a bowl and do that in 4 bowls. Add drops of the food coloring you want to use and mix it.

Take 1 color and using an cookie dough scoop add the first color
Then the second color

Followed by the third color

And then top with the final color

Take a knife and lightly swirl each cupcake making sure not to mix too much

Bake in the oven for 19-22 minutes (same as the cupcake info on the back of the white cake mix)
Let cupcakes cool and then top with frosting. 

And the birds nest with Gimbal’s Jelly Beans inside of them
You can make a little bird face using food coloring
Or paint a little decoration on some of the Gimbal’s jelly beans to look more like bird eggs

Slice in half or dig in and enjoy!
