Tips and Tricks to Make This Cupcake Decorating Idea
As with all of my cupcake recipes and decorating ideas, I like to share what I’ve learned while making them. You don’t have to make the same mistakes I did…
- make the pots of gold first and let the frosting and sprinkles harden a bit
- you can use frosting from a can – no one will know and we won’t tell
- for added St. Patrick’s Day fun, add a few pieces of Lucky Charms cereal
I like to provide options to everyone because not everyone likes over-the-top cupcakes. If you want to make rainbow cupcakes, just don’t add on the pot of gold. Easy peasy, right? They’re so cute just as a fun rainbow food idea!
