Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, and what better way to celebrate than with a beautiful rainbow dessert table. I put these treats together for a youth group get-together last night, and couldn’t wait to share all the fun details.
The back drop was so simple but looked great, just one balloon in each colour of the rainbow!
I wanted to provide some drinks, so we followed our rainbow theme, and found some pop in each colour (well almost, water worked for blue 😉 ). I also found some really fun glow-stick type straws, and you guessed they came in rainbow colours.
For the dessert the star attraction was the rainbow cake.
I’ve seen so many of them on blogs, but I have to say it was fun to make and a huge hit when I cut the first piece and revealed the rainbow inside.
I just divided the batter evenly and coloured it with food colouring, and then baked each of the six layers separately, and stacked and iced when they were cool.
I love how the little rainbow bunting flag turned out too. Such a fun detail. I just made it with a little scrap book paper and double sided tape.
We also served some fruit-loop rice crispy treats. I used fruit-loops instead of the traditional rice crispies to make them rainbow-y.
There were also some simple rainbow chips-ahoy cookies, and some rainbow licorice, gum balls, and lollipops.
The other fun treat was the rainbow layered jello.
It was simple to make, and looked great -just a little time consuming! My little girls loved -definitely their favourite part of the rainbow extravaganza!
Life is a party, a rainbow party!
