Saint Patrick Day Cakes: Make a Lucky Leprechaun Fruity Rainbow Cake



Saint Patrick’s Day Desserts

All of the Irish and those who are only Irish for one day love to celebrate with great Saint Patrick’s day desserts. Shamrock shakes and floats are popular all over town for the whole month of March. 

Rather than just something green like green iced cupcakes or lime sherbet, why not make something really cute that honors the luck of the Irish and packs a little nutrition too.

This adorable Saint Patrick Day cake is topped with kiwi, blueberries, diced peaches and raspberries.

Lucky Leprechauns and Rainbows

The little leprechauns are tiny little elfin shoemakers who have a pot of gold hidden at the end of rainbows.  Legend has it that if you can spot a rainbow and catch a leprechaun at the same time, you will win the pots of gold. But leprechauns are hard to catch. They live deep in the forest and are very sly and very fast.

How to Make a Lucky Leprechaun  Fruity Rainbow Saint Patrick’s Day Cake

Step 1. Follow directions for making a cake from a confetti cake mix. Or make your own favorite yellow cake from scratch and add rainbow sprinkles to the mix.

Step 2. Cool the cake.

Step 3. While the cake cools, prepare the rainbow fruit topping. Slice and dice kiwis. Use diced canned peaches, blueberries, raspberries, and pink and green mini marshmallows.

Step 4: Ice the cake. I like using Duncan Hines starter icing in blue cotton candy. The flavor compliments the confetti cake.

Step 5. Starting from each end and working to the top, begin the fruity rainbow starting halfway up the cake.

Step 6. Attach 3 regular-sized marshmallows to toothpicks to form “clouds”.
