Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! I hope you all have a very lucky day and if you’re old enough you have a green beer or one of these Guinness, Jameson & Baileys cupcakes! These triple liquor cupcakes have Guinness in the frosting, Jameson in the chocolate ganache, and Baileys in the frosting. Topped with a small green shamrock, these cupcakes by Cake & Allie look festive and delicious!
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.
I know I have shared my love of Sur La Table in the past and I am so excited that in the last few months a store opened up at my local mall. The only down side to having the store near by is I see and want things like this Duo Icing Set. What an ingenious idea! For $14.95 you get eight bags and six tips. The bags are not your ordinary bags, these bags have a divider down the middle so you can simultaneously pipe two colors at one time!
I really like the peplum tops that are in style right now. I think they are very figure flattering and when accentuated with an embroidered cupcake it’s very cute! This peplum cupcake bustier is designed by Nishe and costs $93.25. The adjustable metallic bow belt is even included! You will be ready for your birthday in this outfit!
