Rainbow Cupcakes August 26, 2012

I’ve been wanting to try these cupcakes for a long time.  Aren’t they adorable?  I want to make these rainbow cupcakes for my daughter’s Candyland birthday party, but I wasn’t sure if the rainbow airhead would actually stay in an arch once placed on the cupcake.  The candy is very flimsy, so I wasn’t sure how they would turn out.  To my surprise, these worked out great.  I made a box of yellow cake and divided it into four bowls.  I added food coloring to each bowl and scooped one spoonful of each color to make each cupcake.  The colored batter was a fun surprise for the kids, very rainbowesque (yes, I’m making up words).  I’m definitely going to make these for the party.  Oh, and I was lucky enough to find some Funfetti canned icing that was already blue.  It saved me some time!

Substitutions:  I used marshmallows for the clouds instead of icing.

 

 

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Twizzlers and Rolo’s Treat March 18, 2012

My daughter’s eyes lit up when she saw the Rainbow Twizzler’s I purchased.  I showed her a picture of the project we were going to make and she was thrilled.

 

To complete this project, I used Rainbow Twizzler Twists, Rolo’s, and sandwich baggies.  I had my four year old and her neighbor friend help me place the rainbows.  They had to find all the colors to make a rainbow and then lay out the rainbows on our kitchen table.  Then, they counted out Rolo’s for me.  This turned out to be a great lesson for my preschooler (matching colors and counting).  I placed the Rolo’s and Twizzlers in the baggies.

 

The kids handed out the treats to some of the neighbor friends.  These treats were a hit.  If I’d had more time, I would have created a cute “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” label to attach.  Maybe next year …

Substitutions:  My daughter is allergic to nuts, so I substituted the Hershey’s for Rolo’s!
