St. Patrick's Day Cupcakes

Happy St. Pattie's day eeeeryone. For this hoilday, I couldn't turn down the opportunity to make green cupcakes. The only question was, what kind of cupcake could I turn green? Then it hit me, red velvet! So, to celebrate, I made green velvet cupcakes. The chocolate didn't come through as much as I would have liked, but they sure do look purty. I went to Michael's to get shamrock sprinkles and then I found these adorable shamrock cupcake papers too!

I am going to a St. Patrick's day party/ birthday party for my CASI friend, Vicki so I am giving these cupcakes to her for her birthday. Hope you like them, hun! These were super fun to make so email me if you would like the recipe. You could really make these cupcakes in any color, but I would add more cocoa powder to the batter to make them taste more like chocolate. Once again y'all, Happy St. Patrick's Day. Hope you wore green today so you wouldn't get pinched, I sure did!

Strawberry Fields Forver

Hello everyone!

I am deeply sorry for not blogging at a sooner time, but like I've said before, College has taken over my life. I am a second semester junior now and can not wait for summer to come :) I hope all of my readers have been well and healthy. I have been happy and concentrated so y'all do not worry that I have fallen off the edge of the Earth, I haven't.

Anyways, for one of my classes(that is 3 hours long), each student takes turns bringing snacks. Well it was my turn last week and I made delicious strawberry cupcakes with strawberry buttercream. Now, I do have to admit that some of this, especially when choclate is envolved, I do not eat my own cupcakes. This time, I got to class and realized I had not eaten all day and my cupcakes were getting scarfed by the class, so I grabbed one. It was such a beautifully rich and delectable dessert! It was light and fluffy and the buttercream had the perfect hint of strawberry. Actually, no hint at all, it was positively strawberry. Everyone in the class (including my teacher, and a guest speaker), LOVED them! It always makes my day when I get compliments and they all thought the edible glitter was fantastic, which I know it is, (I put it on everything). Tell me what you think, aren't they Go-geous? (In a Texan accent)
