If you're looking for a way to impress friends and family, without having to put in too much effort, try whipping up a batch of rainbow cupcakes. While everyone is busy being awed over your fantastic baking skills you can sit there smugly, knowing that these aren't much harder to make than a standard batch of vanilla cupcakes.

Divide the mixture into 4 or 5 small bowls (depending on how many colours you're using).

Add a few drops of food colouring to each bowl, and then add more to adjust the colours to your liking. Stir until the mix is evenly coloured.

Spoon the mixture, colour by colour, into the individual cupcake cases. Use roughly about a teaspoon of each colour (will vary depending on how many colours you're using). Don't worry about creating even layers, spooning them one on top of the other will create an interesting look.

Put in the oven, and bake until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cupcakes comes out clean.

To prepare the ganache, place white chocolate melts in a heatproof bowl. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, and then in 20 second intervals until all are melted and the mixture is smooth.

Add cream and mix quickly. Leave ganache in the fridge to cool.

Once cupcakes are cooked and cooled, using a large star piping tip, fill a piping bag with the ganache. Pipe the ganache onto the cupcakes, and then sprinkle with 100s and 1000s.
