My kiddos and I made a leprechaun trap cake this year. We followed directions from notmartha.org—which was one of my favorite blogs, and sadly has been lying fallow for years. Kids will be thrilled tomorrow to see that we caught a leprechaun, but he ate his way through, leaving icing footprints and a trail of edible glitter and mayhem on his way. We’ll see if the rainbow in the inside comes out ok!
(Edit to add:)
Kiddos were super thrilled. They ran in and woke me up at the crack of dawn to tell me all about it. Then they made me scroll through all of our ring footage at the front door and driveway looking for the leprechaun. Fortunately the neighborhood cats and possums were extra active last night. The rainbow turned out great! I used one box of white cake mix and an angel food pan at 325 f. I found a spoon easier than piping the runny batter out in concentric rings. 6 oz red batter, 5 oz orange, 4 yellow, and so on for each ring, using whatever remaining white was left in the very bottom of the pan. I also only trimmed the teeniest bit off the bottom of the baked cake for it to sit level, so the underside was a bit domed, but I’m glad I didn’t trim more, or the purple would have been shaved away.
