Love is not limited to any gender norms, this the what the LGBTQ+ community promotes all over the world. Even though in many regions of the world they are still seen in a negative light, the community itself remains strong, open and united--and this is especially reflected during Pride Month, which is June of every year.

Central to Pride celebrations are colourful parades, festivals, and gatherings that foster a sense of community and solidarity. These events not only showcase the rich tapestry of LGBTQ+ identities but also serve as platforms for advocacy, education, and empowerment. The flag that represents the community is rainbow-coloured, designed by artist Gilbert Baker. Hence including vibrant colours in the snacks is the best one can do at a Pride event. 

Here are some rainbow-colored snacks and sweets that you should add to your Pride parties and celebrations.

Unicorn Cake

This multi-layered delight features fluffy, colourful cake layers, each tinted with a different hue of the rainbow.

Frosted with creamy, vanilla buttercream and adorned with sprinkles and edible glitter, it offers a delightful sweetness and moist texture. The playful mix of colours and flavours embodies celebration and inclusivity, making it an irresistible centrepiece for your event.

Rainbow Pasta

Start with pasta dyed in vivid colours using natural vegetable-based food colouring. Toss the pasta with fresh veggies like bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, and purple cabbage for added crunch and colour. Drizzle with a zesty lemon vinaigrette or creamy pesto sauce to enhance the flavours. The mix of textures and the burst of tangy, fresh, and herby flavours make this dish both visually stunning and delightful to taste.

This colourful dish features a mix of al dente pasta spirals, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, red onions, sweet corn, and cucumbers, representing every hue of the rainbow. Tossed in a zesty lemon vinaigrette, it bursts with fresh, tangy flavors and a hint of garlic. The mix of crunchy vegetables and tender pasta creates a delightful texture combination. Garnished with fresh basil and a sprinkle of feta cheese, this salad is as delicious as it is visually stunning.

These vibrant skewers feature a medley of fresh vegetables like cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, red onions, and mushrooms. Each skewer bursts with a mix of sweet, tangy, and earthy flavours, highlighted by a light drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt and cracked black pepper. The crisp textures and vivid hues not only delight the palate but also celebrate diversity and inclusion.
