Roll out a 10” L x 1/8” thick rope, be sure to choose a different color fondant. You will need just as many of these, as the bottom count. Continue this process, until you have used all of the colors, and then it will be time to start assembling your rainbow cupcake holder.
Place the round bottom on a glass platter, put honey on the edges, so the next layer or rope will stick to it. You will continue this process, by stacking the ropes on top of each other, until each color has been utilized one time each.
