Shamrock Cupcake
What's your Take?

Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, so get the family together to make a batch of these festive cupcakes.

What you'll need

  • Cooled cupcakes (baked from your favorite recipe)
  • White icing
  • Green gum drops or spearmint leaves
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Rolling pin

How to make it

  1. Frost a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with white icing.

  2. For the shamrock, flatten 3 green gumdrops or spearmint leaves with a rolling pin (sprinkle on a little sugar, if necessary, to keep the candies from sticking).

  3. Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter (ours was 1 1/2 inches across) to cut a heart from each flattened leaf.

  4. Place the hearts together on the cupcake to form a shamrock.

  5. Cut a stem from the excess of one of the flattened candies and set it in place below the 3 hearts.
