Pot of Gold Rainbow Cupcakes

My boys love making rainbow cupcakes (well, really, any cupcakes), so we decided to make pot of gold rainbow cupcakes tonight to get in the St. Patrick's Day spirit. 

I split a white cake mix into 7 different bowls. I colored each of the bowls a different color: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Then I put a scoop of each color in a cupcake liner. 
When they were baked and cooled, I piped green frosting on the cupcake using a "grass" tip. 

With black sparkle food gel, I drew on a pot. I added gold sprinkle balls to the pot and put on some rainbow sprinkles. 

On some of the other cupcakes, I simply added pastel egg sprinkles. 

This is what they look like on the inside.
