Rainbow Sherbet Cupcakes! Made with real Rainbow Sherbet and topped with three flavors of frosting swirled together. These cupcakes smell and taste like a dream!
Not only do these cupcakes look like rainbow sherbet, they taste exactly like it!
That might have something to do with the fact that they are made with melted rainbow sherbet. Say whaaaat?!? Yes. You heard me correctly! I melted the Rainbow Sherbet and added it to a cake mix. And voila! Rainbow Sherbet flavored cupcakes! I was worried about how the colors would mix together, but the cupcakes come out a lovely peach color. No food coloring needed. There are of course a few modifications that I had to make to the cake mix also, but that’s all included in the recipe below.
But did I stop there? Oh no. If you follow me at House of Yumm already, you know me better than that! I always have to do something fun with my frosting!
Not only is this a tri-colored frosting. It is also tri-flavored! Is that a real phrase? I’m not so sure. But I AM sure that this frosting is possibly the most awesome frosting to ever be put on a cupcake.
I used a Strawberry flavor, an Orange Creamsicle flavor, and a Key Lime flavored frosting. All swirled together. Trust me. It’s amazing. Make sure you check out my tutorial on how to swirl together three different frostings here. It’s so much easier than you would think!
For the frosting I used those lovely little Flavor Creations packets from Duncan Hines. Mix it up with a homemade frosting and they work perfectly! I also happened to notice that there are some store bought frostings in those flavors available now.
You are going to love how easy these cupcakes are to make, and how they practically scream out Summertime!!
