Rainbow Sherbert Cupcakes

This amazing cupcake has the exact taste of rainbow sherbert and delicious and refreshing cupcake. When you use a Strawberry flavor, an Orange Creamsicle flavor, and a Key Lime flavored frosting.  All swirled together. The fruity flavor of it and the colors make these Rainbow Sherbet Cupcakes seem like the perfect summer cupcake. This is a cupcake perfect for adults and the kids. 

  • For Cupcakes
  • 1 box white cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups melted Rainbow Sherbet (can melt in microwave)
  • For Frosting
  • Duncan Hines Flavor Creations packets in Strawberry Shortcake, Orange Creamsicle, and Key Lime
  • 8 cups of Powdered Sugar
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cupcake liners in cupcake pans.
  2. In a large mixing bowl add cake mix, eggs, and rainbow sherbet. Stir to combine. Add in the flour and give a few stirs until just mixed in.
  3. Add cake batter to the cupcake liners using a ⅓ cup of batter, filling until the cupcake liners are about ⅔ full.
  4. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until baked through, check with a toothpick. Let the cupcakes cool in the baking tin for 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to continue cooling.
  5. For Frosting
  6. Add all ingredients to large mixing bowl.
  7. Mix on low speed for 2-3 minutes until ingredients are combined. Then mix on medium speed for an additional 3 minutes until frosting is peaking, meaning that it is holding it's shape.
  8. Separate into three bowls and add a flavor packet to each bowl. Stir to completely combine the flavor into the frosting, should have a uniform color throughout.
  9. Frost using all three frostings, tutorial at House of Yumm here. I used a Wilton 2D tip for these cupcakes.
