This month Yudith, from Blissfully Delicious, challenged us with a St. Patrick’s Day theme for the What’s Baking challenge. This was perfect for me because I was making green desserts for my students for a St.Patrick’s day themed party. I immediately thought of green cupcakes and decided to do a twist on the traditional red velvet cupcake and I made a green velvet cupcake. I used canned cream cheese icing (gasp!) because the kids do not like real cream cheese icing; I tried it once before and it was a disaster.
The kids were very unsure when they were taking the cupcakes and didn’t understand why they were green. However, once they bit into them they loved them! To make it more fun for them I added green sprinkles and a gold foil wrapped chocolate coin. The smiles on their faces were enough to let me know just what they thought of the green velvet cupcakes.
HAPPY ST. PATRICK’s DAY!
