Easy Rainbow Trifle! A St. Patrick's Day Treat
  • One box white cake mix plus ingredients listed on the back of the box (each brand may be different)
  • Liquid food coloring
  • 1 large box instant vanilla pudding plus milk required listed on the box
  • 1 large tub whipped topping - thawed
  • Rainbow sprinkles (optional)
  1. Prepare the cake mix according to the package directions. divide the batter into 6 seperate bowls.
  2. Using liquid food coloring, color each bowl of batter the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple)
  3. Bake as directed on the package for cupcakes.
  4. While the cupcakes are baking, mix your pudding as directed on the package, adding a few drops of yellow food coloring to make it a gold color. I added 4 drops yellow and one drop red so it was a bit more orange than yellow. Place in the fridge to firm up.
  5. Fill one piping bag with the whipped topping, and another with your pudding. This will make your layers even and much more consistent than mine.
  6. Once your cupcakes are baked and completely cool, begin layering your rainbow.
  7. Start with a layer of your pot of gold vanilla pudding on the bottom. then one layer of crumbled cake (red), a thin layer of whipped topping, the next color crumbled cake, whipped topping and so on. Until you have each color of the rainbow in your cup separated by a layer of whipped topping.
  8. End with a final layer of whipped topping, and rainbow candy sprinkles if desired.
  9. Cover with plastic wrap, and keep chilled until you are ready to serve them.
