Kids love cupcakes. And for St. Patrick’s Day you can make some one-of-a-kind cupcakes with your family to celebrate. Keep it simple by mixing up shamrock shaped cupcakes that look like they’re topped with the lucky symbol. Eat a shake, instead of sipping one, by baking Shamrock Shake cupcakes. Swap red velvet cupcakes with green velvet ones. To really impress your kiddos, stash goodies in the middle of the sweets when you follow the directions for surprise-inside St. Patty’s Day cupcakes. Another unique idea is to create rainbow frosting to adorn pot of gold cupcakes. With so many different ideas why not make a couple different recipes and have a St. Patty’s Day cupcake party at your house?

Shamrock Shaped Cupcakes

To start out this recipe for shamrock shaped cupcakes from The Chocolate Muffin Tree, you’ll need a box of chocolate cake mix. Follow the directions on the box and then pour the batter into your paper muffin cups. Have your child form small aluminum foil balls to position in three places around each muffin cup to create a shamrock shape. Once baked, remove the foil balls and frost with thick, green buttercream icing.
