Rainbow Poke Cupcakes


Rainbow Poke Cupcakes are simply regular poke cake as cupcakes dressed up for anything that is a rainbow theme. They remind me of my Key Lime in jar cakes that I made last year.

Use Air Heads Extremes to make the rainbow and homemade frosting!

Poke Cake ingredients Just one tip would be to use 2 cupcake wrappers. One that you bake and make them in, then when you want to display them, add a decorative wrapper to dress it up a bit!
