I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: I am a horrible cake and cupcake decorator. Like really bad. It looks so easy in those viral Facebook videos. I don’t have a steady hand and it typically looks like a 2 year old trying to make a unicorn… even though it was supposed to be Barbie. Instead of staying out of the cupcake game, I come up with clever ways to embellish and dorate to cover up my lack of decorating ability. Rainbow cupcakes are a great example of this!

Start with your favorite cooled cupcakes. Chocolate, vanilla, Oreo, whatever. Add cloudy blue buttercream frosting and a few key elements. Rainbow fruit leather comes in several varieties, usually sour or sweet. Look for rainbow candy belts. You’ll only need one package to snip into your perfect little rainbows.

Golden sugar pearls add your “pot of gold” and shimmery cake sparkles make your clouds float. Simple and perfect! My grocer even offers pre baked cupcakes just waiting to be decorated.

Molasses cookies, sometimes known as ginger snaps or spice cookies, are one of my favorite Christmas cookies. Soft and spicy without being overly sweet.
