How to make rainbow cupcakes

So now this is my 5th version of a rainbow cake - check out the other 4 here. This one was inspired by a photo on Pinterest posted by Mia B. I knew I saw these rainbow candy at our corner store so I had to try it. Rainbow candy or "Gay Bacon" according to Epic Mealtime - have you seen them, they make crazy extreme meals with fast food or in this case candy.
Ok, back to the cupcakes. Pretty simple, I used the cupcake recipe from Saucy's Sprinkles, then iced with blue tinted buttercream icing. I cut the rainbow candy in half and curved on the cupcakes to make an arc. The clouds are just mini marshmallows.
So cute and so easy to make. I made them for the bake sale at Lilo's school fun fair. They were a hit and sold fast.
And don't leave your iced cupcakes on top of the oven while you preheat it for dinner. The heat from the vent on the top melted a few cupcakes, I luckily had saved some extra icing so I re-iced them. The wrappers were a little sticky but no one complained.
