  • 1 Sour cream pound cake 3 colors: orange, white, green
  • 3 cups Vanilla pudding 3 colors: orange, white, green
  • 1 cup Buttercream frosting
  • 1/2 cup Kiwis Sliced, Patted dry
  • 1/2 cup Green grapes Sliced, Patted dry
  • 1 Orange Sliced into small pieces, Patted dry


  1. Prepare your cake batter. Then, divide the batter into 3 bowls. Leave one bowl as is and color the other two batters green and orange.

  2. Once the cakes are baked, allow them to cool and slice them up into small pieces.

  3. Sticking to my orange, white and green Irish flag theme, I chose fruits that were green and orange (I couldn’t find any white fruits). Slice your oranges, kiwis and grapes fairly small.

  4. Prepare your puddings in orange, white and green colors.

  5. Then, start layering everything in your big beer mug.

  6. Finally, use a round decorating tip to pipe buttercream icing on top of the mug, to create the illusion of "froth." Enjoy!
