We have been busy making our St. Patrick's Day plans and have had no time to cook or bake anything. That's why we teamed up with Cerrato Sweets! These cupcakes are a great last minute idea. Most of the ingredients are already stocked in your kitchen, and the last few are easily found with a quick trip to the food store. 

We will definitely be setting up our delicious treats under a giant rainbow balloon arch for some added drama. You can check out our favorite balloon arch DIY here to create one of your own!

  • Combine butter and sugar into a large bowl and mix well. Add 2 eggs and mix until the batter is smooth. Add vanilla, baking powder, salt, flour, and milk into the bowl. Mix well. 
  • Pour into cupcake foils. Fill each one about 3/4 of the way.
  • Back for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. 
  • Let the cupcakes cool while you prepare the frosting. Use a mixer with a paddle attachment. Beat butter and sugar on a low speed for three minutes, occasionally scraping the sides of the bowl. 
  • Add in vanilla, heavy cream, and food coloring. Turn to medium/high speed and whip for 1-2 minutes. 
  • Pipe on blue frosting. Use white frosting to add decorative clouds to the cupcakes. 
  • Add rainbow candy strips. Dip Rolo in frosting, then in gold sugar to create the pot of gold. Press into the frosting for the finishing touch!
