Here’s a fun St. Patrick’s Day cupcake from

You’ll Need

  • Cupcakes
  • Blue Buttercream Frosting
  • White Buttercream Frosting
  • Piping Bag
  • Pastry Tip with 1/4 to 1/2 inch opening 
  • AirHeads Rainbow Candy
  • Rolos
  • Gold Coarse Shimmer Sugar or Gold Sprinkles


Frost cupcakes with blue frosting. Pipe on fluffy white frosting with a 1/4 to 1/2 inch plain round pastry tip. Frosting needs to be stiff to help keep the candy rainbow in place. Cut AirHead Xtremes in half and place the ends into the white frosting. Add more white frosting if you want extra “clouds”. Be sure to not cut the AirHead rainbow candy too long. This will make a saggy rainbow. Pipe white frosting on the bottom of a Rolo candy. Dip the frosting in gold coarse sugar or gold sprinkles. Place the candy pop of gold at the end of the rainbow.
