Here's what ya need:
One vanilla cake tinted green (cooked and cooled)
Chocolate or vanilla cake batter (for cupcakes)
Frosting & decorations of your choice
Cupcake pan and liners
A mini shamrock cookie cutter
(Sorry about the lighting in the these pictures!!! Couldn't wait to get this post up... also the melted frosting.. don't forget to let your cuppy's cool... again trying to get the post up!)
First, line your cupcake trays with cupcake liners and preheat your oven! Then, take your vanilla cake (that is tinted green and completely cooled) and cut out your shamrocks with your shamrock cookie cutter.
Now, take your cake batter (I used chocolate) and coat the bottom of the cupcake liner.
Next, place your shamrocks into the batter- you might have to gently push it down just so the it stands up.
|dont' they look so cute??|
Make sure they are standing up straight...and that they don't start floating around..(it happend once to me... I have no idea why..but it did) Coat it. When it cooks the batter will bake around it.
Do that to all of your cuppy's, ok?Then get those babies in the oven... and let the magic happen!!!
Bake, Cook, then frost & decorate!
Not too bad right?? A little time consuming & few more steps than regular cupcakes..but easy!! Now just think of what else you could put in the middle of your cupcakes?? Hearts for valentines.. (or just to say I love you?? aw, sweet.) Maybe flowers, butterflies, stars... The wheels are turning.. I'm already thinking about stars & red, white and blue... how about you???Print Page
