Make the Cutest Rainbow Donuts for St. Patrick’s Day
Rainbows have quickly become the new black and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, where rainbows are a staple and you’ll be sure to find gold at the end! Rainbow food has been popping up everywhere but what about turning your food into an actual rainbow, clouds and all? You’re definitely lucky (wink) for finding this how-to because we’re showing you how to gear up for St. Patty’s Day this year with a little colorful magic and these rainbow donuts.
– sprinkles in rainbow colors
– donut icing
– shredded coconut
1. Cut your donuts in half.
2. Dip the halves into the icing.
3. Starting with your pink sprinkles, line the outside edge of the donut.
4. Continue to add sprinkles for each different color of the rainbow until the whole donut is covered.
5. Add a little more icing to the top of the donut ends and place a ball of shredded coconut on top for the clouds.
Try to choose donuts that have a very round shape so the rainbows turn out with more of an arch.
Be careful not to leave your donuts sitting for too long after you’ve iced them. You’ll need the icing to still be wet when you add the sprinkles.
Don’t make your rows of sprinkles too thick or else you won’t be able to fit in all of the colors.
Somewhere over the rainbow… there are donuts!
We don’t know about you, but we’re all set for St. Patty’s Day now.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
