Tricolor cupcake

I made this Tricolor cupcakes inspired by my own tricolor momos recipe. In that recipe, I added carrot and spinach puree in order to achieve the saffron and green to make the momos. I did the same thing here also. I added the carrot and spinach puree in the tricolor cupcake and in the frosting too. I added only egg whites to get that white color in the center. Added oil to the cake batter. You can add butter too, but oil will keep the cake moist and tender.
Let’s see the procedure for Tricolor cupcake,
