Rainbow Cupcakes

My kids and I made these adorable rainbow cupcakes and they are absolutely perfect for a Noah’s ark lesson!  I had some difficulty finding the rainbow candy, but was finally able to locate it at Walgreens.


  • 1 box cake mix + ingredients to make it
  • Blue frosting (from grocery store OR tint a can of white frosting)
  • Airheads Xtremes Sweetly Sour Candy Belts – 1 (3 oz.) pkg. should be enough for 24 cupcakes
  • Mini marshmallows


Make cupcakes according to package directions.  Let cool.  Frost with blue frosting.  Cut each Sweetly Sour Candy in half crosswise.  Gently press ends of rainbow candy into frosting to make a loop (it will be floppy, so play with the placement).  Stick mini marshmallows in frosting at both ends of rainbow to make clouds.  Enjoy!

Yield: 24 cupcakes
