A very talented Bake It in a Cake reader named Daniela made the double rainbow coconut cupcakes and they look SO AMAZING! She was kind enough to give me permission to share her photo. She says: “I am really excited about how good they looked (and they tasted even better!)”
Here’s the recipe, should you want to make your own (and you do). A perfect spring treat!
(And if you make your own Bake It in a Cake creation, send me a photo! I’d love see your creations.)

1. Apply two coats of Mint Ice Cream, while using a tissue to wipe off the polish on the top part of the nail.
2. Apply two coats of My Old Flame leaving the moons exposed.
3. Apply OPI top coat, sticking a star rhinestone in each nail as you go.
NOTE: Try using paper hole reinforcers to block off the moons if you are having trouble doing it free hand. Just make sure the first polish is completely dry before you do this. Practice doing it free hand though. I wasn’t good at it at first either, but now I find it easier than using hole reinforcers.
