I love the simplicity of this shamrock cupcake. If you want to add a bit more green you can easily add some food coloring to the icing and swap vanilla cake for chocolate. The options are endless. I think that cupcakes are always a fun way to celebrate different occasions with your own creative style. Feel free to visit Sara Collett’s blog to take a look at her vanilla cupcake recipe.
