Pot of Gold St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Cupcakes:
St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner and I will take any excuse to bake something pretty and fun. I have wanted to make rainbow cupcakes for a long time so I had the idea to make rainbow cupcakes with white icing for clouds and gold coins for the treasure at the end of the rainbow! Which is all associated with leprechans right? Well, that was my idea for St. Patrick's Day! But you could easily make these for ANY occassion!!! So fun and so easy!
You will need:
1 box white cake mix
1 can of frosting
1 box of food coloring
12 chocolate gold coins
1 large zip lock bag or pastry bag
1 icing tip for piping
I will start off by saying this recipe makes about 14-17 cupcakes. It will not yield 24 as the box says because of all the transferring of batter. I suggest using 2 boxes of cake mix if you want 24 cupcakes.
All you do is mix up the batter as the box says and then separate it into 6 different bowls, one for each color of the rainbow. Now add the food coloring. The directions on the back of the food coloring box worked great for me while I was mixing up my colors. Make sure they are VERY vibrant because they will fade slightly when baked.
Now place one spoon full of whichever color you want on the bottom batter into the cupcake liners. I chose to have purple be the bottom. Next spoon in the second color. Repeat this until you have all the colors desired. Keep in mind that you have to use small spoon fulls or you will fill the cupcake too quickly and you won't be able to fit all your colors.
That's it! When your finished layering simply bake and cool.
