And boy have my celebrations changed. I am no longer stressed about finding something green to wear out that night, or racing to get in line for green beer. But that's ok. I've made peace with this.
This year I decided I would make something green of my own. Cupcakes. Lucky Charm Cupcakes. Lucky Charm Funfetti Cupcakes to be exact. I mean who doesn't love Funfetti? If you've never had Funfetti, well then, you haven't lived! It's so simple yet so amazing. And although I was a little upset when they changed the Funfetti frosting on me, I've moved on.
Ok, back to these delicious St. Patty's cupcakes I made.
They were ridiculously easy to make. I didn't get crazy making some special recipe. It was literally plain old box mix Funfetti. Don't judge. Pillsbury knows what they are doing people!
Oh Wait, I did use egg whites and applesauce in mine because I believe it makes them more fluffy and healthy. So have two or three or...?? I'm not going to tell!
Ok so you have a basic cupcake, and now use any frosting you like, store-bought is fine or homemade, because you are feeling guilty for using boxed cupcake mix, there is no judgement here. Vanilla is what I used.
Add some green food coloring to get your desired shade. Toss the frosting in a Ziploc bag, snip the tip and swirl on the pretty green frosting.
Now comes the fun part. The Lucky Charms.
Which I might add are made with Whole Grains! That's right General Mills and I are looking out for you.
Tip: The cereal gets stale fast. So wait until just before serving to decorate.
This had me thinking, what else could I make with lucky charms? That is, if the box lasts through the week.
