Secret Rainbow Cupcakes

Happy Monday Everyone!  I have always loved the many confetti filled cake you can find on Pinterest. They just look so joyful and happy.  I can’t imagine anyone cutting into one of these cakes and not having a smile on their face.  I wanted to make a mini version out of a cupcake to share with some friends.  I am taking them dinner tonight and they have two of the sweetest little girls.  With St. Patrick’s Day coming a cupcake filled with the rainbow made the perfect sense. This recipe, however, is easily adaptable for any holiday or event just switch out your surprise filling.

  • Make your favorite vanilla cupcakes.  Mine are from a box.  For this project nothing more is needed.
  • Using a small knife, make a circle in the top of the cupcake and scoop out the middle leaving the cake intact.
  • fill the hole with mini M & M’s, sprinkle or any other fun candy (Rainbow Nerds)
  • Cut off the bottom of the cake piece that you removed and replace the top.
  • Frost with your favorite frosting and decorate any way you like.
