These are the most easy rainbow cupcakes ever! You don’t have to dye multiple colors of frosting to make rainbow frosting! You only need plain white frosting and some sanding sugar. If you want more rainbow ideas , my daughter loved sewing this hanging rainbow cloud, so easy to make and they make a great party favor.
You will need a rainbow of sanding sugar!
How to make easy rainbow cupcakes
Frost the top of the cupcake clear to the edge. Hold tip close to cupcake to use less frosting. Dip top of cupcake in red sugar.
Make another layer of frosting right on top of the red layer. This time don’t go clear to the edge. Bring the frosting in at least 1/4 of an inch.
Dip the cupcake in the orange sanding sugar. Rock the cupcake so the edges are completely coated.
Repeat process with yellow sanding sugar and so on…….
until you have a beautiful sparkly rainbow cupcake.
They make great St Patricks Day Cupcakes when you add a fondant shamrock.
