Taste the Rainbow: St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

So I was tweeting away last night about making these rainbow cupcakes ….well I wanted to share the finished pictures with you all. We are going to deliver these to our neighbors today wishing them a luck St. Patrick’s Day. If you are looking for a last minute treat– these are simple. I even had everything to make these rainbow cupcakes right in my pantry!

See how bright these are? I used plain white cupcake liners. And made these flags using my computer and a toothpick.

I couldn’t resist a close up!

They look so cheerful all in a row, don’t they?

What about on a tray? I got this great green tray at target for only $2.50, score! Here is a better look:

Rainbow Pancakes make for a Cheerful Breakfast

I got so much interest when I posted these on our Facebook wall, that I decided to share them here as well.

Want to make your family smile on a Sunday morning? Serve them up a cheerful breakfast surprise, rainbow pancakes! They are simple to make. Prepare your favorite pancake batter as usual- then divide it amongst separate bowls and add food coloring to each bowl (I used 5 colors here but you could use 6 colors in the rainbow). Then, cook like normal!

Enjoy!
