St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes (Rainbows & Shamrocks!)


St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes

Get ready for March 17th with this cute idea for St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes – cover all your lucky bases with rainbows AND shamrocks.

(Jamie here!) The kids and I made these St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes last year – and they turned out so cute I had to share!  The best part about these shamrock & rainbow St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes was how easy they were to put together – I was able to let the kids totally take over this decorating job.



I started with a regular cake mix and frosted with light green buttercream frosting.  You can also use canned vanilla frosting and add a few drops of green food coloring.

For the rainbows, all you’ll need is a pack of Airheads Xtreme Sour Belts candy and some mini marshmallows.  Cut each belt into 3 pieces and push the ends into the frosting.  Place a mini-marshmallow at each end.

For the four-leaf clovers/shamrocks, we used our leftover green Christmas M&M’s (we already used the red ones on Valentine’s Day!)  For the clover stem, I used scissors to cute the green stripe from the Airheads Xtreme belt, and then snipped it into smaller lengths.

While we loved making (and eating!) these St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes – the kids still want to make our traditional St. Patrick’s Day Cake when they get home from school today :)


And for a SUPER Easy green treat – whip up these St. Paddy’s Day Cake Mix Cookie Bars!
