taste the rainbow | edible art

I wanted to quickly post this morning to share a super-easy, adorable dish that is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.  I saw it last year in Family Fun magazine and while it’s definitely fun to make on St. Patrick’s Day, I recommend bookmarking the idea because it’s an all around easy, fun, kid-friendly Summer dish.

This photo was originally taken last year on St. Patrick’s Day morning before my kids left for school. This was their breakfast. :)  We’re not Irish however we’re all for corned beef, cabbage, the color green and rainbows. I draw the line at leprechauns.

If you plan on making this, you first need to gather a rainbow of fruits. I used strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, red grapes, green grapes and blueberries. You could sub-in other fruits you may have on hand. Some colorful ideas include raspberries, orange wedges, banana slices, kiwi, honeydew, watermelon and blackberries. You want to make edible clouds to finish off your rainbow ends. I made homemade whipped cream because it’s my fave but you can also use yogurt for dipping or two piles of mini marshmallows.

After your edible rainbow is assembled, it looks like this:

Cute, huh?

This year, I am thinking about adding something new to my St. Patrick’s Day food arsenal (my Mom takes care of the corned beef and cabbage. I like to take charge of the fluff-type stuff). We’ll have our fruit rainbow for breakfast and maybe, just maybe, Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Bailey’s Irish Cream Buttercream for dessert. O.M.G. I am salivating already…. and apparently using Thursday night as “cheat night” as far as WW Points go.

Have a lovely, lovely Tuesday.
