St Patrick’s Day Cupcakes
I love to celebrate. From little things to holidays, every day is a reason to celebrate. So it is no surprise that I would have a love of St Patrick’s Day cupcakes. I find every reason I can to make every holiday fun in our house. I like to grab some cheap decorations at the dollar store and decorate the dining room. While some people think I might be a little over the top, the kids love waking up to a festive dining room and I enjoy doing it.
On top of some festive decorating I like to have fun and festive foods for us to enjoy as well. Our St. Patrick’s Day dinner always consists of either Crock pot Corned Beef and Cabbage or bangers and mash with our Irish Soda Bread. These cupcakes can be the perfect addition to St. Patrick’s Day Dessert Recipes and after enjoying dinner.
I like to keep a theme and of course being a mom of 4 I need things to be easy as well. Thankfully there are lots of easy ways to make St. Patrick’s Day fun including making tasty St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes!
After the fun day of St. Patrick’s Day if you have left over corned beef you have to make the BEST Reuben Sandwich Recipe! It is the perfect St. Patrick’s Day left over sandwich!

Tips for Making Homemade Cupcakes
Do not over mix. Over mixing the batter will lead to having tough cupcakes. Just mix the ingredients until they are mixed together.
Do not over bake. Leaving cupcakes in the oven baking longer then needed will dry out the cupcake.
Let the cupcakes cool completely before frosting. I find it best to bake the cupcakes, remove them from the baking pan and then start making the frosting. This way the cupcakes are cooled when I go to frost them.
Use a pastry bag or thick zip close bag to frost the cupcakes. I much prefer decorating cupcakes with a pastry bag, it makes life easier. But if you don’t happen to have pastry bags you can use freezer zip top bags. But you need to make sure you’re using the freezer bags or when you push the frosting out the bag will rip open. Trust me I’ve had experience with this!
