Rainbow and pot of gold cupcakes

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Here’s my take on the rainbow and pot of gold cupcakes that have been circulating around Pinterest St. Patrick’s Day boards. The key is getting your hands on those sour belt candies — I’ve seen them at drugstores such as CVS, but I was able to buy them singly at a candy shop. Yum! My belts were on the soft side; I had to prop up the middle with a toothpick. If you use this, make sure you take them out before serving to little kids.

What You Need: 1 cupcake; green frosting (I used canned Christmas frosting already tinted); rainbow-colored sour belt; mini marshmallows; Rolo candy (if you don’t buy the bag of individual wrapped ones, you can fashion a pot of gold out of a Rolo and the long, gold wrapper the regular rolls are wrapped in.)

How to Make It: Frost cupcake. Arch rainbow and secure at one end by sticking a Rolo to it with frosting “glue.” Surround each end with mini marshmallow clouds.
