End of the Rainbow Cupcakes. Cute and easy. Recipe and tutorial on { lilluna.com } Funfetti cupcakes with green frosting, Wilton cupcake Easter Basket kit, rolo's or gold coins, and your grass tip.

It’s not like the next cupcakes are anything new. There are a gazillion adorable rainbow cupcakes out in blog land but thought I would do my version of them today. I’m calling these ones: End of the Rainbow Cupcakes….

What do you think?

They were inspired by these beauties that I found at Target in the Easter section for a few bucks:

They are obviously meant for Easter for Easter Basket Cupcakes, but I thought “those kinda look like Rainbows….hmmmm….I think these would be great for a St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Cupcake!” So, that’s what I did!

{You can notice that my kids liked them too and shook them about a bit breaking a few of them – haha!}

SUPPLIES:

-Cupcake mix and ingredients to make

-Green frosting

-Wilton Cupcake Easter Basket Kit

-Rolos/Gold Coins

-Grass Tip

DIRECTIONS:

All I did was make regular Funfetti Cupcakes…

Then I used my grass piping tip to add grass to the top.

I then stuck in the rainbows and threw on a rolo for the “pot of gold”.

You can even throw on some Chocolate Gold Coins instead of Rolos. I found mine at Joann’s in the checkout section.

And if you’re looking for an even easier version you can do these which are just frosted with a gold coin in the middle.

These are great! I am hosting a St. Patrick’s day party for my 3 year old and his friends and they will love these! I’m sure I will not be able to find the kit, but I have some left over candy canes from Christmas that I think I can use to make the rainbows! Thanks for posting!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re welcome! Leftover candy canes would be perfect – especially the Spree or Rainbow kind. Great idea!! Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚

The BearFoot Baker

Oh my goodness! These are so cute!

    Lil' Luna

    You’re so sweet, Lisa!! Glad you like them although I’m sure yours would have turned out way more professional than mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

Carina

They are adorable, such a cute idea for St. Patricks day. Thank you for sharing – now off to Target to find that kit! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you – glad you like them! Were you able to find the kit? They are with the Wilton items in the Easter section. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Lil’ Genius! What a great idea!! I’m so, very impressed with your piping skills…I think you did a fab job! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    You’re so sweet, Emily! My piping skills are horrible! I took a Wilton cake decorating class like 10 years ago and haven’t touched my stuff since then but I will admit the grass tip makes it easier. ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL!

Andrea @QueenBandme

My lil Em keeps asking if the leprechaun is coming this year {because he did last year} These would be a cute treat from ‘him’
SO darling!!!!
XOXO
Andrea

brittany

those are great. I love the pot of gold. I would have tried really hard to come up with something for that. I like the gold coin idea too. I had no idea that they make cupcake basket kits with partial candy canes like that!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much, Brittany! And I had no idea they sold them either until I saw them at Target. I think they are new this year. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stopping by and say hi. Hope you can come back again soon. XO
