Tie Dye Cupcakes & Party

We hosted a little tie-dye sleepover.  What would be the perfect thing to serve?  She(Little Miss Hostess) wanted tie-dye cupcakes.  These looked pretty incredible. We'd give it a go.
We started with this cake mix and followed the directions for a white cake(meaning no yolks).
Divided up the batter into six bowls and added food coloring to each. Luckily I had a lot of the colors we needed.
We used paste food colors for all of the colors except blue. For the blue we used liquid food coloring.
Layered them in the muffin cups.
Don't they look cute?
She iced them.
Added some sprinkles.

It all started with this kit that we bought last summer and never got around to using.

I found these cool foam glow sticks at Michael's.
They had a lot of fun with them.
We had these water balloons and some were even tie-dyed!
They did some tie-dyeing(and they all ended up with dyed feet!)
Played some games.
The shirts turned out great!
I was ready for this!

2 of my daughters and kids tie dyed last month all sorts of clothes...t-shirts, bibs, underwear(little boy and big boy!). Your cupcakes would have been a big hit. I'm going to make sure they see this.
