Rainbow Cupcakes is our idea for a childhood recipe that my boys and I will enjoy making and remaking time and time again because whats not to like? They are bright, colourful, and easy to make, and cakes that children will love making aswell as eating.
I made vanilla sponges with smarties in the batter just to add some extra fun, but they would work equally well with chocolate or lemon sponge. We topped each cake with vanilla buttercream, and covered with mini white marshmallows to make clouds and then rolled out Renshaw’s ready to roll different coloured icing into strips to form rainbows. We also added a gold covered chocolate coin to represent the pot of gold you find at the end of a rainbow. Rolling our these ready to roll icings is similar to playdough really, so …. well just like child play!!
