Rainbow Cupcakes

Written by chanie on October 17th, 2012

We all know I’m not much of a baker, but when my newsfeed got flooded with Noah¬†rainbow crafts of all kinds, I was inspired to create something fun with my kids. All those multicolored rainbow cakes were definitely out of my league, mixing one batter is enough for me – forget 6! (not to mention all that unhealthy food coloring). Inspiration struck from my pinterest crafting board, where I pinned¬†this cupcake idea a while back. I simplified the idea by using a simple glaze instead of a buttercream, as well as mini marshmallows instead of pastry cream. The results are absolutely adorable! Feel free to use your favorite cupcake recipe, or follow my easy no-mixer recipe below.

*In the story of Noah, G-d promised never to destroy the world again with a flood, and as a symbol of that promise, he made a rainbow appear.

  2. GORGEOUS! I love the rainbow sour belts!

  3. These cupcakes are super cute! I love the marshmallows for clouds. I don’t know why you hate baking, you are good at it!

  4. OK, it is rare for me to squeal, squee, think something is cute. Between you and Melissa (lil miss cakes) I am having a cute attack. OMGSQUEE! #cuteattackover

    I loved this cupcake idea, made it with my kids! They were so excited. My first grade daughter tells me that your daughter brought this to school. Would have been a great idea for me to do in school with her class!! Maybe some other time.

      That’s so funny! I thought about doing it with the class but the school gave me a hard time with homemade stuff in the past.

  6. I agree those layer cakes are way out of my league, but this is very doable and I like the portion control of cupcakes.

    This is absolutely adorable! I’ll have to keep it in mind for my preschool class next year! You did such a wonderful job, I especially love how you simplified it with the marshmallows! It makes it so much less daunting (and the elimination of that extra step is pretty helpful too!) Thanks for sharing! :)
