Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you haven’t forgotten to wear at least a bit of green, today. Celebrating our Irish heritage is a big deal for my family, so we’ve been counting down the days until St. Paddy’s. Growing up, we would always eat corned beef and cabbage for dinner in honor of our heritage…but I know that combination isn’t appetizing to everyone! How about focusing your St. Patrick’s day feast on the rainbow that leads you to the lucky leprechaun with a pot ‘o gold, instead? I’ve found five ways to whip up a rainbow in your kitchen, today, and–as an added Irish blessing–I’ll be giving you a wee bit more inspiration, too!
1. Rainbow Cake
Here’s a cake with a rainbow inside made by Not Martha. And let me tell you, this lady takes her rainbow cakes very seriously. Stop by and see all the different ways she demonstrates to make delicious, colorful cakes.
2. Rainbow Punch
Searching for the pot ‘o gold making you thirsty? Wendy of Ramblings from the Sunshine State shares a frosty sip of rainbow slush. You’ll be surprised at what she used to make this pretty bowl of punch.
3. Rainbow Rice Krispy Treats
These Rainbow Rice Krispy Treats look like they would be fun to eat! An original recipe from Raspberry Cupcakes, head over to see how they were made and be wowed by dozens of other delicious recipes.
4. Rainbow Fruit Tray
Brandy at Gluesticks threw a St. Patrick’s Day party at her house, and came up with this darling rainbow fruit tray. I love how she used marshmallows and bananas for the clouds. Lots of options, here.
5. Rainbow Jello
The girls at Our Best Bites are known for creative and delicious foods, and this jello in rainbow hues is no exception. What a colorful, fun addition to any table!
And a lucky bonus link of rainbows:
I found this rainbow themed party at Kara’s Party Ideas, and just had to share it with you. The buffet of rainbow foods is outstanding! No recipes on this one, but the treats would be simple to recreate, I’m sure. (Just between you and I, I’m in love with those chocolate dipped Oreos.)
