Cut Out Clover Cupcakes


We made these fun St. Patrick's Cupcakes last week and they are SO easy to make! Martha Stewart made these Valentine Cupcakes....


I was seeing these everywhere around Valentine's Day so we just recreated that idea using a shamrock cut out instead of a heart.

Just make your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe (we like Pillsbury). Put a few drops of green food coloring into white frosting. We used a cream cheese frosting. When the cupcakes are cooled...cut the tops off with a knife and dust with powder sugar (if you would like)...


Spread on the frosting. Cut out a clover/shamrock with a cookie cutter in the middle and place on top of the frosting. How easy is that!

  2. What a clever idea to cut the top off! It looks so much more complicated than that. I think I will give this a try. Thanks for sharing this great idea.

  13. These turned out great. We made some clover cupcakes last week using hearts for the leaves since we didn't have a shamrock cookie cutter. Haven't blogged about it yet...but soon.

  25. Hi Jill,

    I made your very cute cupcakes and they turned out great. Not quite as cute as yours... my shamrock cutter was a bit large for the cupcake top. I was able to place them back on and it looks good! Thank you for sharing your creative ideas so people like me (not so crafty)can be inspired! I blogged about it today and linked it back to you. Happy Feast of St. Patrick's Day!
