Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day, so get the family together to make a batch of these festive cupcakes.
Frost a cooled cupcake (baked from your favorite recipe) with white icing.
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).
Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter (ours was 1 1/2 inches across) to cut a heart from each flattened leaf.
Place the hearts together on the cupcake to form a shamrock.
Cut a stem from the excess of one of the flattened candies and set it in place below the 3 hearts.
