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.
Groundhogs Day is tomorrow and even though here in North Carolina we have had a mild winter so far, I am hoping the groundhog does not see his shadow! I am ready for spring weather! I love these Groundhogs cupcakes created by Bloom Designs using green frosting, sprinkles, and teddy grahams. The cupcakes are so easy and the teddy graham looks cute popping out of the frosted cupcake!
I love walking through the stores this time of year because so many stores pair cupcakes and hearts in their Valentine’s decor items. So far I have spotted cuppies in the Valentine’s sections at Walmart, Target, Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, Christmas Tree Shop and Kohl’s. So a big thank you to all the stores who join cupcakes and hearts this holiday season. You make it so much more special for the cupcake obsessed. All Things Cupcake appreciates you!
As soon as the holidays end and New Years hits, it seems like it’s time to start thinking about the next holiday, which is my personal favorite, Valentine’s Day! I have already started keeping an eye out for great cupcake items and spotted these cupcake cards on Pottery Barn Kids’s website. The set of 20 cards cost $12.00.
I have to admit there have been many New Years Eves in my twenty something years that I have spent watching the ball drop from my couch. Sometimes it is nicer to just sit at home and relax instead of getting all dressed up and staying up late. If you are planning on staying in or throwing a little NYE get together, these ball drop cupcakes by Confessions of a Cookbook Queen are the perfect cupcake! I know they cupcakes and resolutions that go along with the blog post are two years old but they made me laugh so you should definitely read them!
