How to make St. Patrick's Day very bright rainbow cupcakes with buttercream shamrocks: video, plus Cadbury Creme egg, Glee and Beatles cupcakes

This is a detailed 12-minute video about how to make very bright rainbow cupcakes for St. Patrick's Day, by blogger Jennifer Johns of Cupcakes, Cookies and Cardio (what a great name!). She also has her own business, JJ's Custom Cakery, so if you don't want to make them, you can order your own in Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada by contacting jenn at or 778-517-1415. You can see more photos on Facebook. (They also showed us how to make the popular Valentine's Day heart cutout cupcakes in a video)

This is how bright they are, at least when made by JJ's Custom Cakery (and you, presumably, if you use the right amount of food coloring):
