I made these cupcakes for St.Patrick’s Day – which also happens to be Bob’s birthday – so Happy Birthday Little Bro. These cupcakes were a bit time consuming but the attention they got was definitely worth it!
I used Saucy Sprinkle’s Cheater Cupcake Recipe because I was a bit rushed for time:
- 1 French Vanilla Box Cake
- 3 Eggs
- 1/2 cup Melted Butter
- 1 cup water
- Wilton gel green food colouring
Place batter into lightly oiled cupcake liners and place into a 350°F oven for 18 minutes. Take out and let the cupcakes completely cool before icing.
- 3-4 cups of icing sugar
- 1 block of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2-3 tbsp cream
- 1 tsp Wilton butter flavouring
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Pipe onto the cupcakes with a small round tip to shape the icing into the form of clouds. To make the little pots of gold, I ended up using foil covered peanut butter cups, topped with a dollop of the icing then rolled into yellow sprinkles. To create the rainbows used sour candy rainbow belts and anchor onto the cupcake using icing sugar. I also added a bit of icing to the base of the pots of gold to give them extra hold to the cupcake.
