    These rainbow cupcakes with a pot of gold are the perfect St Patrick’s Day cupcakes!  I love to celebrate holidays and have shared some great stuff here at Skip to my Lou for St. Patrick’s Day! Check out my St. Patrick’s Day Printables or this recipe for green popcorn, it’s perfect to munch on!

    Rainbow Cupcakes with Pot of Gold

    Frost cupcakes with blue frosting. Pipe on white frosting with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch plain round pastry tip.

    rainbow cupcake clouds

    Cut AirHead Extremes in half and place the ends into the white frosting. Add more white frosting if you want more “clouds”.

    Candy Rainbow for Cupcakes

    Pipe white frosting on the bottom of a Rolo candy. Dip the frosting in gold coarse sugar.

    Pot of gold for cupcakes

    Place the candy pop of gold at the end of the rainbow.

      Where do you get gold coarse sugar? I'm from Canada and I'm not sure if I've ever seen this in the store before. Thanks.
