All About You Link Up Party - Rainbow Cupcakes

It's Time For All About You Monday! Our weekly session where we get to show off our projects and creations. 

Texas Monkey

St Patrick's Day is this Thursday and you can check out my Macaroni Kid site for all kinds of fun to enjoy with your family. One way you can make memories with your monkies on March 17th is making some yummy Rainbow Cupacakes. And no rainbow is complete without a leperchaun leaving some gold.

Cake batter of choice
4 different food colors
Candy wrapped in gold (gold coins, Roll-O's, etc)

Make your batter as you normally would for cupcakes and divide the batter into 4 bowls.

Add drops of food color to each bowl. I used yellow, green, blue, and red.

Layer your batter into your lined cupcake pan one at a time in any order of choice. I did blue, red, green, then yellow on top. (As you can see from the picture it doesn't have to be pretty or neat and when you are letting a 2 year old help I assure you it is not going to be either but FUN it will be!)

Bake according to directions.

Tint your icing green and decorate your cooled cupcakes. Top with your gold candy.

Now my favorite part, give your Macaroni Kid a cupcake and watch their face lite up with joy! Oh and don't forget to enjoy one yourself.

Happy St Patrick's Day
