St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Cupcakes

Enjoy some baking fun with the kids!

By Shayna Mills March 15, 2019

St Patrick's Day is right around the corner and Macaroni Kid is bringing you all kinds of fun to enjoy with your family. One way you can make memories with your monkeys on March 17th is making some yummy Rainbow Cupcakes. And no rainbow is complete without a leperchaun leaving some gold. 


  • Cake batter of choice
  • 4 different food colors
  • Icing
  • Candy wrapped in gold (gold coins, Rolo'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.

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.
