Leprechauns are the most enduring creature in Irish folklore because they are the ones that can get you money that you didn’t have to do anything for and that is the most enduring dream of all mankind. I’m dreaming of it right now. I would buy so much stuff and be a jerk to everyone. If you want to find the leprechaun’s gold, you’ve got to go to find the end of the rainbow. And to find the end of the rainbow, you must become the end of the rainbow. And to become the end of the rainbow, you must eat the rainbow. You know what I’m talking about. No, not Skittles. Rainbow cupcakes.
As beautiful as they are delicious, these rainbow cupcakes are a snap to make. The trick is in taking the time to do the rainbows the right way. It takes some time. And some knowledge of the visible spectrum. Roy G. Biv and all that. But other than that, it’s all pretty straightforward. The recipe is the same as our shamrock mini-cupcakes, but since these are larger, give them an extra five to ten minutes in the oven. Also, instead of shamrocks, decorate them with rainbows (an array of rainbow-colored sprinkles to be exact).
