Satisfy your sweet tooth with festive St. Patrick's Day desserts, including cute shamrock cookies, Irish creme cheesecake, and colorful rainbow cupcakes. Whether green, minty, or infused with lime, each of these St. Patrick's Day food ideas guarantees a lucky day.


2 - boxes white cake mix
14 - cups white frosting
Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple gel food coloring
3 - 4 - cups gold candy-coated chocolate balls, such as Sixlets

Bake cake mixes according to package directions using four 8- or 9-inch round baking pans. Cool completely.
Meanwhile, divide frosting into 7 bowls (2 cups frosting per bowl). Tint each bowl a different color, leaving one bowl white. Transfer each color frosting (except white) to quart/size resealable plastic bags.

Trim cake tops, if desired. Cut a circle out of two of the cake layers, leaving about a 2-inch border.
To assemble, place a whole cake layer on cake board or cake stand set on a turn table. Spread with a thin layer of white frosting. Repeat with the two cake layer rings. Fill the cake with the gold candy-coated chocolate balls. Top with remaining whole cake layer.

Spread a thin coat of white frosting around entire cake. Chill 30 minutes. Snip the corner of each bag of frosting making about a 1/2-inch opening. Pipe a 1-inch thick line of colored frosting around the outside of the cake making rings. Repeat with remaining colors, alternating as desired, layer one after another like horizontal stripes. Using a bench scraper or plastic ruler, smooth the frosting in 1 sideways motion white carefully spinning the turn table. Pipe 1-inch thick rings on top of the cake, alternating colors as desired, creating a "bulls-eye". Hold the bench scraper halfway across the top of the cake and spin the turn table while smoothing the frosting.
