St Patrick's Day......

I always have these grand and cute ideas to celebrate Holidays with my kids but with the craziness of life......sometimes my ideas never pan out!! On St Patrick's Day, that didn't happen..........we actually made these super cute rainbow cupcakes!!

All the mess............
The kids dying the batter rainbow colors!!
First, we made our batter which was extra special because we made it from scratch!! We then dyed the batter different colors and then proceeded to layer the different colors in the cupcake liners. We baked them and then topped them with green homemade butter cream icing!! They were super yummy and super duper cute!!

So cute huh?

We actually dropped some off at Gene's work for him to share too!!
Asher wants to share with you!!!!!

annie, this is SUCH a great idea! it looks like the kids enjoyed it so much - what a cool idea to not only color the icing, but also the batter; i'd have never thought of doing that. :) also, i love that first shot of the cupcakes! very cool!
