  9. Hi Stefanie!
    Just starting a batch of these this morning! :) I'll blog tonight!
    To get ya started... You will need your cupcake liners, green food dye, a mini shamrock cookie cutter, depending on what type of cake you want.. (today I am making chocolate cuppy's with a vanilla cake shamrock in the middle) & frosting-(I'm going for a creamy mint buttercream...a combined inspiration of those yummy thin mints and st. patricks day)
    I start off by making a vanilla cake dyed green on a sheet pan. This is what you will use to make the shamrocks inside!
    You will probably want to do that ahead of time, since the cake will need to cool.

    I've started that this morning- and my frosting! :)
    I'm making chocolate cuppy's.
    First, coat the cupcake liner with your cake batter, cut out a shamrock cake pieces, place one shamrock in the middle of the batter (in the liner) then cover with a little more batter... make sense?
    Then bake them just like a regular cupcake...
    You will have to be sure to know which way your shamrock is facing so that when you eventually frost and slice.. you get a shamrock on either side..
    Ok that's a brief overview, will take pictures tonight and post :)
