Gay Pride Cupcakes

I was supposed to make these rainbow cupcakes for my gay coworkers on August 1st but I have been very wrapped up in leaving the garden centre and starting my new job! Finally I had a chance last night to make these super fun cupcakes!
I made a white cake mix up and divided into 6 bowls to make the colors... then I put all the colors in icing bags (I have found that tall glasses make awesome icing bag holders). I then layered the colors rainbow like in the cupcake liners and baked them.

They actually baked in a rainbow shape, I was so thrilled... these ones I started with the red on the bottom and purple on top....

These I started with the purple on the bottom and ended with the red on top...

I forgot to take a picture of the end result, I put a swirl of white butter cream icing and ALOT of glitter. My coworkers were sooo thrilled over these cupcakes. As they each came into the office to tell me how much they loved the rainbow with the sparkle flair on top, I had to laugh as all their chins were sparkling!
