Rainbow Cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. They also make a great treat for your Unicorn or My Little Pony themed birthday! Super easy to make!

Would you guys believe that this is my first attempt at making a cupcake that was more than just your average frosted cupcake? I’ve made my own frosting before and I’ve piped it into a nice design on top of cupcakes but I’ve never really done anything more than that. I was inspired by this cupcake over at Skip to My Lou and I knew I wanted to make some of my own.

The first thing I did was find out where I could get my hands on those cute rainbows! After doing some digging I found out that they were called Airhead Xtremes. I had never seen them before in any store so thanks to a little Google research I found out that my local Walgreens sold them. If you don’t have a Walgreens nearby, you can snag them right HERE on Amazon.

I used the Funfetti box mix for these cupcakes and I used blue food coloring to make the blue frosting. To help make the rainbows stay put, I took a wooden scewer  and made a slit on both sides of the cupcake so that I could push the ends of the rainbow in. I finished it off by piping a “cloud” on each side using THIS Wilton cake decorating tip.

Each cupcake used about 3/4 of a rainbow. Cutting it in half made it too small and leaving it whole made it too long. 3/4 was just right.

Making these rainbow cupcakes will surely win you some brownie points with your kids. Mine were all over the once I took the photos for this post! Ha!

While rainbow desserts are a huge hit on St. Patrick’s Day, these cupcakes would be perfect to serve at a Unicorn or My Little Pony themed birthday party, don’t you think?
