Welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so glad to have you! I have updated the Cupcake Heaven page, there are over 100 designs and recipes! Check it out!!

St. Patrick’s Day is another one of those fun holidays to bake for. Lots of yummy cookies, desserts and of course cupcakes! I’ve created some fun St. Patrick’s Day Cupcakes for you. The design is not original, lots of bakers have shared them, but I put a little twist on it, made it my own, and also made a video showing you how to create them.

You can never have enough green on St. Patrick’s Day…green cupcakes with green sugar on the edge, topped with Shamrocks and Leprechaun Hats! Curious how to make them? Here is the video…

Update: I’m not sure if the video says it clearly, but the frosting needs to be melted in the microwave. You will need it pretty runny, don’t worry it will harden back up. Be sure to use canned frosting though, it works the best.

    Hi Liz, These cupcakes are adorable! Thanks for sharing. I did have a question about the hats, it looks like when you’re dipping the marshmallows & crackers that your frosting is more liquid, did you add anything to the frosting besides food coloring? And did you use liquid food coloring? Thanks, I’ll be making these over the weekend to take to my high school bible study class on Monday morning.
