St Patricks Day Cupcakes

These St Patricks Day Cupcakes are so pretty when they’re finished. Festive and fun to make, you & your guests will marvel at your creativity and you, at your ability to wow!

St Patricks Day Cupcakes Ingredients:


  • 1 box cake mix with their suggested ingredients-but with the addition of a few baking heavy weights that will make for a fantastic cupcake!
  • substitute the oil for unsalted butter
  • add one additional egg


  • 1-2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 sticks/1 cup unsalted butter softened, not melted
  • ½ cup marshmallow fluff
  • 2 cups confectioners/powdered sugar sifted
  • small green nonpareils *(or white and powered green food coloring to make your own)

St Patricks Day Cupcakes Directions:
  1. These treats will come together in no time by using a box mix, and the adjustments listed above will give them a full and luxurious taste. Follow their instructions for other ingredients, mixing and baking. Cool on wire racks fully before frosting.
  2. In your electric mixer, cream the sugar, butter, marshmallow and pure vanilla extract until thick and smooth.
  3. Place about half of the frosting into a piping bag, working with less at a time will make this step easier.Use a large round or a ‘rose’ tip.
  4. Start on the outside of each cupcake and swirl inward toward the center, sprinkle the nonpareils on top right away.
  5. Store in an air tight container large enough that they do not touch one another.

*If needing to add the green to white nonpareils… Add a tiny dash of powdered green food coloring to a small jar with small white nonpareils. Swill, shake or mix the tiny candies until the coloring has fully developed and you no longer see speckles of darker color on the nonpareils. (There will most likely be a bit of left over coloring in the jar, do not worry about that).
