It just happened to be the day that two gigantic window were being replaced, which means I was mixing batter at 10 am and figuring out how to decorate at 1 pm and then rushing out the door. So, not much of a surprise that when I sat down to decorate, I realized our decorating supplies were at an all time low.
No food coloring. No sprinkles. And certainly no fondant. What's a girl to do?
I did happen to have a bag of m & m's hiding in the cupboard . . .
and thus gave birth to the rainbow cupcake.
Nothing fancy. Just a little pop of color on a pathetic batch of butter cream frosting. I know. Please ignore it's grainy appearance. Butter cream just isn't the same when using the local "powdered" sugar.
Not as fluffy as I would've like but thankfully it still tastes yummy. At least I assume it does, since not a single cupcake survived the day. Which means they might resurface again for St. Patrick's Day. Or a Wizard of Oz party?
