Looking for a pot of gold? What better way to bring some St. Patrick’s Day fun into your home than with these rainbowlicious cupcakes? With a few simple ingredients, you’ll be sure to lure a leprechaun your way.


  • box of white cake mix
  • food coloring (to achieve these rainbow worthy colors use a mixture of neon food coloring and original food coloring)
  • container of prepared white icing
  • rainbow sprinkles
  • Air Head Extreme Rainbow Berry sour candy


  1. Follow cake mix package directions for cupcake cooking instructions.
  2. Allow to Cool and ice with white icing.
  3. Cut Sour Candy rainbows about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length. Place on the cupcake in arch formation creating a rainbow.
  4. Sprinkle with rainbow sprinkles.

Creative Ideas:

Become creative with icing and sprinkle toppings. Consider a gold coin candy or Rolo for perhaps a piece of gold at the end of your Air Head rainbow. While waiting for these yummy treats to bake, have your kids put their imagination to work! Encourage your young engineers to gather items around the house and design a leprechaun trap. Painting and coloring of course are great ways to celebrate all the colors of the rainbow too!

Enjoy and shall I say, Good Luck?!?
