Double Rainbow Cupcakes

Posted by on Mar 11, 2012 in Dessert, Entertaining, Recipes | 7 comments

It was my boss’s birthday yesterday, and any old cupcakes just wouldn’t do. We always joke around about the double rainbow Youtube video that went viral a couple years ago. If you haven’t seen it, you may have been living under a rock, but don’t worry, I will enlighten you.

And now that you are inspired by this dude’s amazement of the DOUBLE COMPLETE RAINBOW, let me take it to the next level — double rainbow cupcakes!

Now I was exploring my pin boards on Pinterest and I saw this and this¬†—¬†rainbow inside and rainbow on top — and I came up with the idea to put these two brilliant ideas together. And wow, just wow. They’re so beautiful and bright! WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!

Now to make the cupcakes it’s pretty simple. You can follow this rainbow cupcake recipe, but basically you take white cake mix, divide it into 6 bowls and dye them red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. I used plain white cupcake wrappers so you can see the colors through them. Then you pour the batter in layer by layer, about a spoonful in each one and bake according to the directions on the box.

When they come out, they look all tie dyed on top, but the side looks in rainbow order.

Then for the top, I just dyed 2/3 of my cream cheese frosting blue (I prefer it for taste, but if you want the clouds to be white rather than off white, go for a powdered sugar frosting), frosted the top and added sprinkles. With a pastry bag, add clouds on either side and stick your rainbow candy in securely. You may want to practice on wax paper to make sure you cut the candy ribbon in the right length so it will stay up.

That’s it! These are perfect for birthdays, or they would be a super fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert! Then you just eat whilst pondering the meaning of their beauty. It’s a double rainbow all the way. Full on. Whoa, that’s so intense!

        Don’t be surprised if the food is bland if yo7;u821#&re ordering fried rice and egg rolls at a Thai restaurant. For actual flavor try ordering actual Thai dishes.
