I don’t do a whole lot to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, besides wearing green to avoid getting pinched, but this Leprechaun Trap Cake by Not Martha is pretty tempting to try. You can see the rainbow hiding inside, but the real trick is the trap in the hollow center of the cake, where gold coins (meant to lure the leprechaun in) are balanced atop some pretzel stick bars in hopes he’ll fall in the hole.
See? So cute! Our craftfailing friend Tamara got in the St. Pat’s spirit and decided to make one, but discovered just what I feared—that trapping an actual Leprechaun might be easier than trapping a rainbow inside a cake.
