Foodie Friday: Rainbow (Birthday) Cupcakes

First Friday of the month:  Food Find / Dessert

First Foodie post for 2012 -- let's make it bright, sweet and colorful to usher is a bountiful year ahead!

My girl will turn 5 on Sunday and has been anticipating her school "party" with her classmates. She can't decide what theme or character she wants to use for her simple celebration since she wants too many things. But for the past couple of months, she's into anything rainbow -- rainbow dresses, rainbow-colored toys, playing with my rainbow scarf, picking rainbow candies, etc. etc.

It was supposed to be the villains from Super Mario Brothers cartoon since big brother had this theme for his own birthday last November. Well, I'm glad her moods changed in time for her own celebration so for her class treat today, we decided to go with "rainbow".

Luscious and colorful rainbow cupcakes shared with her teachers and classmates.

After a hearty snack of home-cooked spaghetti bolognese and slices of Greenwich special pizza, it was time for the highlight of the day -- the yummy birthday cupcakes!
Her classmates were happy and surprised to see the rainbow cake as soon as they had a bite!

Light, fluffy, super fun and colorful butter cupcakes with mallow icing and rainbow sprinkles.


Watch out for the big rainbow cake we're having on her actual birthday! ;)
