St. Patrick’s Day Recipes – Cupcakes

Looking for an easy St. Patrick’s Day treat for the kids?

These little end of the rainbow cupcakes are so EASY!! I mean – who doesn’t want a little gold and fun at the end of the rainbow??

Some vanilla frosting sprinkled with gold sugar will have your little leprechauns dancing. I purchased AirHead Extremes for the rainbows and they worked out perfectly. The kids LOVED them.

Now I’m going to share a little secret.

St. Patrick’s Day Recipes – Easy As Can Be

Sometimes I just don’t want 2 dozen cupcakes sitting in my house so I get a store-bought package of 6. I scrape off the frosting and then frost them and decorate them myself. It’s the perfect amount! Enjoy everyone!

And for anyone wondering what the meaning behind St. Patrick’s Day is — St. Patrick’s Day observes of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking and a whole lot of green.  It’s a wonderful day to celebrate and have some fun!
