Are you looking for a easy, but totally festive dessert to make for St. Patrick’s Day? Look no further!!
Take a white boxed cake mix and prepare according to the directions on the box. Before baking, add orange food coloring or gel paste until you reach the desired shade. After the cupcakes have baked and cooled, whip up a batch of your favorite vanilla frosting (here’s mine!). Pipe frosting onto cupcakes and garnish with the green candies of your choice. I used Mint M&M’s, but you could just pick out the green ones from a plain bag, use Skittles, green Sixlets or even jellybeans since they are already popping up in the stores.
If you prefer a more liquid St. Paddy’s Day treat I have a few cocktails for you to check out! There’s the Whipped Popsicle (it’s the perfect shade of green!), Summer Green Sangria, and the Drunken Irish Potato! Everyone have fun and remember to drink responsibly this St. Patrick’s Day. That means that for every cocktail you drink, you should also have a cupcake!
