Mini Bosses Cook – Rainbow Mini Muffins

Some time ago I posted a picture on Instagram of some cute mini muffins, that my little friend Alessia made. Like all five year old’s she loves everything rainbow colored, but can be a bit picky when it comes to food, specially desserts, so she wisely chooses vanilla every time. You know, just to be sure it’s gonna be good ๐Ÿ˜‰ We bake and get often creative in the kitchen, that’s why I created this lovely and simple mini muffin recipe that she can execute and munch on all on her own.
