St. Patrick's Day Recipe: Get Lucky with these Easy Rainbow Cupcakes

By Brooke McLay |

How lucky would you feel if you found a recipe so easy you could impress all the PTA moms and co-workers by first thing tomorrow? Well, lucky you.  This recipe is exactly that sort of recipe.  All you need are two minutes and a small list of easy-to-obtain ingredients and you’ve got yourself these Lucky Rainbow Cupcakes which take about a minute to decorate.  So easy!  So cute!

To make these cupcakes, you’ll need:

  • 1 batch of your favorite vanilla cupcakes, baked into standard-sized cupcake wrappers
  • 2 cans vanilla frosting, one dyed green
  • green sprinkles
  • 1 package AirHeads Xtremes Sweetly Sour Rainbow Belts

To Decorate:

  • Allow cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.  Spread green frosting on each cupcake then sprinkle with green sprinkles.
  • Spoon the vanilla frosting into a large plastic zip-top baggie.  Cut off a small corner of the bag.
  • Pipe “clouds” of the white frosting on two sides of the cupcake
  • Press half an Airhead belt into each cloud.
  • Good Luck!
