Rainbow Cupcakes

1 – Some….where…over the..NOM!

You can say what you like about how these don’t really capture the true spirit of St Patricks day and it is just Stereotyping  but it looks nothing short of perfect and most probably tastes much the same way, add to that the easy to follow step-by-step guide in the image link is one of the best I have seen! The perfect St Patrick’s Day Cupcake in my opinion.

    I have never seen so many Irish stereotypes in one post!

  2. Baking requires you be precise and when I cook it’s a little of this, a dash of that; so I’m a bit put off baking for that reason.
    When highly motivated, I CAN bake, as long as it is not too complicated.

  3. Bailey’s eh! There should be a law to prevent such amazing cupcakes ever being made.

  4. Mariajose says:

    The Bailey’s one & the lucky charms one look delish! yum yum. :p

  5. You have a first class blog that is well worth following, so no problem and thank you so much for visiting mine.

  6. Love this! What a cool blog idea you have. Thanks for stopping by WellGirl!

  7. Look at the source link on number 5 and you will get it. But oh yes the Irish Cream would go down quite nicely.

  8. I don’t get the shamrock cupcake (5), but apart from that all of them look really cool, plus I would totally love the one with the Irish cream!

  9. “end of a long rain storm” That is a mega idea! good to hear you enjoyed it as well.

  10. Why not try and make your own? Or are you like me now baking skills at all.

  11. Lesley Buse says:

    Typically I don’t care for rainbow colored food, (when the body finishes with it…well you get my point) but the rainbow inspired cupcake is fandamntastic! And my feeling is why wait for a dead saint’s birthday to give it a try. I can tell my kiddos i made them to celebrate the end of a long rain storm, to eat while watching The Wizard of Oz, or while we wait to hear who won the latest Powerball jackpot! It’s early and I may be over thinking this! But loved this top ten!

  12. And then there’s the blasted shipping charges. No worries, I got through the crisis by eating toast with blueberry jam. :-)

  13. That’s OK you took the time to read it and I really appreciate that so THANK YOU.

Which one did you like?
