Happy Spring and Macaron Day

By on Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Happy Spring! It seems the cool weather has every one, even Mother Nature thinking it’s still winter.  Today happens to also be Macaron Day.  As a dessert lover and a fan of all things Parisian, I love macarons.  I dare to ask, have you noticed how they are kind of the new cupcake, Paper Source has a good selection of macaron gift items!  If you are like me and love both macarons and cupcakes and of course you love spring, you could make these macaron cupcakes like Polka Dot Bride made! They are colorful, springy, and the perfect way to enjoy both treats!

There are so many different options for St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes.  At first it seems like the classic dyed green is the only option but when you start thinking about it there are Irish car bomb cupcakes, mint variations of cupcakes, lucky charms cupcakes, and these Emerald Isle Cupcakes from Gooseberry Patch.  Instant pistachio pudding mix gives the cake portion their green coloring and a few drops off food coloring help add a darker festive green to the frosting.

The past few years when it’s time for St. Patrick’s Day I start seeing the McDonald’s commercials for their Shamrock Shake.  The mint flavored, bright green colored shake is the inspiration behind these shamrock milkshake cupcakes from Better Homes and Gardens.  Buttermilk and creme de menthe give these cupcakes their minty milkshake flavoring.
