St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Cupcake Toppers


 Top o' the mornin' to ya!

How do you feel about anthropomorphized shamrocks?
You know...shamrocks that smile back at you?

I think these Shamrock Cupcake Toppers are super cute!
Plus, they are easy to make and a tasty treat made out of white chocolate.
Want to whip up some for St. Patrick's Day?

First, save and print this template my hubby made.
Or, you can pipe them freehand if you have ninja piping skills.


Tape your template to a piece of cardboard or a cookie sheet.
Tape a piece of wax paper on top of it.

Melt some green candy melts (I mixed in some white ones to lighten the color).
 Put them in a decorating bag fitted with a small round tip,
or in a ziploc bag with the corner snipped off.
Pipe the outline of each shamrock.


Then, fill in each outline with the candy melts.
 

Let the shamrocks harden, then carefully peel them off the wax paper and turn them over.

 Melt some chocolate chips or brown candy melts.
 Pipe a dot of chocolate on the backs of two candy eyeballs
and arrange them on the flat side of your shamrock.
Pipe a cute little mouth.


 Place the shamrock toppers on the top of your frosted cupcakes and enjoy!


Happy St. Patrick's Day!

For more good luck, try this yummy treat...

  1. Robin, this is brilliant. I have done similar items for Halloween -- I take white chocolate and make ghosts. But I never thought to do like a rimming method with almost like flooding. It's much neater the way you did it and I will be doing it this way from now on. Thanks for giving such step-by-step details for how to do this. It really is easy, and so impressive the way you did it. thank you for your blog, I really enjoy your creative work!!
