Also rainbow-related, but apparently a St. Patrick’s Day project (I forgot about the little pot-o-gold toppers!). 6 bright ass layers of cake with a little vanilla “cloud” (you know, at the end of the rainbow) on top. . . #rainbowcupcakes #stpatricksday #endoftherainbow #layers #brightcolors #rainbows #creativecupcakes #becauseyum
