I love rainbows. Yes, I am in my mid 30s and I still smile when I see another rainbow rendition, be it a flower lei, a set of umbrellas, or a frosted cupcake. Lucky for me, my kids love rainbows too. Rainbow drawings, rainbow markers, rainbow rocks, and yes, rainbow food. What’s not to love? It’s colourful and colourful is fun. In our house, regular meals don’t typically include a dish with all the colours of the rainbow, so when rainbow foods are served, it’s definitely special.
When I make fairy bread, my kids’ eyes grow so big and get sparkly. It makes my heart feel all warm and gooey. My kids can’t get enough. If you’re celebrating something, big or little, bust out some fairy bread for a quick treat, or try one of these other brilliant rainbow recipes that’ll turn any old day into something special. Check out all the rainbow goodness in the slideshow.
Note: If you’re avoiding artificial food colouring, there are natural food colouring options out there like the range from Hopper, free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
