Trending: 60 Edible Rainbows. A Super Duper Awesome Must-See Roundup


Many, many trends in food have come, and sometimes gone, in the last few years. Cake pops, macarons, pie on sticks, quirky popsicles, bread art, “pinata” sweets, mustache pops, updated JellO shots, stuff in mason jars… But there has been one consistent, ubiquitous constant in edible crafts. Rainbows. Rainbows are everywhere. Everybody loves rainbows, especially clever, edible rainbows. They have rainbow parties with rainbow favors and rainbow cupcakes and rainbow cake posp and rainbow candy and rainbow fruit kebabs and rainbow toast and waffles and pancakes and Rice Krispies treats and, I think you get the idea. Here are just some of the rainbow-themed foods I’ve featured here on Edible Crafts in the past few years. Just some, mind you. Some.
