It's been a busy day of baking and cooking to getting ready for tonight's St. Patty's dinner. For a special treat, I made rainbow cupcakes. (They're going to double as part of the center piece.) I started with mixing a white cake mix batter (in this cake I just used a boxed cake mix that was already in the cupboard) according to the directions.Then divided it into six bowls and colored with the colors of the rainbow; red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple.
I layered each color in paper lined cupcake pans. The large cupcakes have a bit of every color, the small cupcakes have at least three colors or more each. I like mixing the regular sized cupcakes with the small bit-size ones. Then into the oven to cake (according to the recipe/directions) until done. (Usually sticking a toothpick in and coming out clean is the best way.)
Let cool. Ice and decorate. (I used a white cream cheese frosting with some green sugar sprinkles. I looked for shamrocks, but had trouble finding them.)
I don't need to a rainbow for luck... I made my own. Sweet, yummy, and might lead to a treasure all it's own.
