Pot O’ Gold at the End of the Rainbow Cupcakes

I’ve made Rainbow Cupcakes before. (That post is almost 3 years old. If you want to see what a long way I’ve come in 3 years, peruse away. 😁 )

These rainbow cupcakes take it up a notch, because there’s something golden at the end of the rainbow….

Golden Oreos that is. 😜

These are simmmmmmmple.

Make up some cake. White makes prettier rainbows, but yellow will work too. (I used yellow. Just had to add more coloring to get the shades I wanted.)

Divide the batter into 6 bowls. Or however many different colors you want. If you hate one particular color you can leave it out. I won’t judge.

Color each bowl a different color of the rainbow.

Scrape the batter into individual baggies. Freezer bags work better cuz they’re a little thicker, but regular baggies will be okay if that’s all you have.

Place a golden Oreo in the base of each cupcake liner.

Cut a small corner off of each baggy. Starting with purple (or whichever color you want last), squeeze a small amount on top of each Oreo. Try to make as thin and as even/flat of a layer as possible. It helps to shake the pan a little side-to-side to get it evened out (though you only want to do that for the bottom layer). Thin is the key here though – we have 6 colors/layers to go and we don’t want to overfill the liners.

Go to blue, or whichever color you want next, and add another thin, flat layer, cover most of the purple if you can. Start by going around the outside then fill in (see picture of me doing green above). This ensures that the outside out the cupcake shows all the colors no matter what.

Repeat with all the colors.

The finished product should be about 2/3 the way full.

Now is the time to preheat the oven to 350*. Let the cupcakes sit out for 10 minutes before putting them in the oven. Seriously. It helps make the tops bake up more round and less nipple-like. You all know what I’m talking about.

Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.

I waited 10 minutes and mine still came out looking like nipples. *sigh*

Top with white or green or whatever color frosting you want. White would be good if you’re going for ‘clouds.’ I did a pale green for St. Patty’s Day! Here is my Easy Buttercream Recipe that I used for mine.

(This is my favorite marshmallow frosting that would be good too, and more cloud like!)

Not only do these look pretty, but that cookie on the bottom really gives them something special!

Fruity Pebble Cupcakes

These cupcakes are LOADED with fruity pebbles!

20140311-102905.jpg

I added 2 cups of crushed fruity pebbles to a box of white cake mix. (And by crushed I mean powder-ized.)

I spread a thin layer of my Easy Buttercream on top, then rolled the top in slightly crunched fruity pebbles.

Pretty, rainbow-y, and perfect as a last-minute St. Patty’s Day treat!

I Have a Blog!

I recently discovered how much I love making – creating – things.

I have been making sugar cookies since I was little, but I have been getting more and more fancy with it over the last couple years. My small addiction to buying cookie cutters has helped expand my cookie creating possibilities.

I have also experimented lately with other cookies, cakes, and candy. I decided to create this blog to show off some of my special creations!

Hope you enjoy…

P.S. here are some of my recent creations to kick off the show!
