Directions for Gamora cupcakes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line cupcake pan with the liners.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix, butter, milk, and vanilla bean paste and mix until combined.
- Divide the batter into 3 bowls and add a color to each bowl: 1 bowl is for pink, 1 bowl is for purple, and 1 bowl is for green.
- Mix until the shades are what hue you would like.
- Scoop about 1 tablespoon of each colored batter into the cupcake liners until the liners are 3/4 full.

- Once the frosting is made, split it into three bowls.
