Leprechaun Hat Cupcakes

How sweet are these Leprechaun Hat Cupcakes? Of course it is all edible and they are EASY to make. The hats are created using Marshmallows and Cookies then decorated to look just like a hat a mischievous little leprechaun would wear.

Then you just place your hat on top of your frosted cupcakes. You can even make your cupcake batter green using food coloring for even more fun.

Rainbow & Pot of Gold Cupcakes

I adore these Rainbow & Pot of Gold Cupcakes !! They are also super EASY to create. The rainbow is actually just Airheads Rainbow Belts Candy and the Pots of Gold are made using Tootsie Rolls and topped with some Gold Sanding Sugar.

Then you just create your cloud frosting using white frosting in a piping bag !! How cool is that? Or you can frost the top of your cupcake green and use mini marshmallows to represent your clouds.

Taste the Rainbow Cupcakes

I love Rainbow Cupcakes and they are not as hard as they look to make. When someone bites into the cupcake the surprise is on the inside when they see all those great colors. You can decorate the top of the cupcake any way you like - maybe add some Chocolate Gold Coins, but the best part of this cupcake is the inside. This is a great choice for a St. Patrick's Day Treat !!

Oh wow they are all good, I really like the mischievous Leprechaun the best. Lucky the Leprechaun always visits our home on St. Patty's Day leaving treats and the like for the kids all over the house. Those cup cakes will be a great addition as Lucky always hides, never to be caught... LOVE IT!
