Here’s the third St Patrick’s Day recipe, courtesy of Disney FamilyFun magazine.
It’s not far to the gold at the end of this rainbow-topped Emerald Isle cupcake, just the thing for your lads and lasses on St. Patrick’s Day.
- A cooled cupcake
- Grass-green frosting
- Several flavors of Airheads candies
- A pot’s worth of gold coins
To make one, first top a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with grass-green frosting.
For the rainbow, use a large, heavy knife (parents only) to cut a long, narrow strip from each of several flavors of Airheads candies (this is sticky stuff, so work on waxed paper). Lay the strips side by side, press them together, then cut the ribbon of strips in half to make two rainbows.
Curve each one into an arch and trim the ends as shown. Set one rainbow upright on the cupcake (save the other for another cupcake) and deposit a pot’s worth of gold coins at one end. If necessary, place a gold coin behind the rainbow for support.
