I adore the simplicity of these yummy St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Charm Cupcakes.
My kids and husband loved them. We shared them with my friend’s son for his birthday. I hear they were addicting.
These are perfect for a St Patrick Day party and would pair perfectly with green punch which I share a recipe for at the end of this post. Let me show you how easy they are to make.
You Will Need:
- batch of the best cupcakes ever
- batch of buttercream icing recipe
- 2 packages of Duncan Hines Key Lime Pie frosting flavor
- box of Lucky Charms Cereal
- icing decorating bag
- pastry tips
Make your favorite cupcake recipe and let them cool.
Take your batch of homemade buttercream icing and add the Duncan Hines Frosting Creations mix in. This one was flavored Key Lime.
You just mix it in to the icing until it is well blended. It turns the icing green.
Grab an icing decorating bag and add a pastry tip to it.
Fill an bag with the green buttercream icing.
Pipe icing onto the cupcakes.
Then I add a handful of Lucky Charms cereal to the top of each cupcake.
It was as simple as that! We loved them.
(We took these and shared them with my friend Kim’s family as we celebrated her oldest son turning 16. I remember when he was a little bitty baby. Where does the time go?)
