I decided to blow your mind a little... with Green Velvet.
We’ve all heard of Red Velvet, right? It applies to confections of all kinds. Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, whoopie pies - you name it. And now just in time for St. Patty’s day, Green Velvet Mini Cupcakes
! WHOA. Let it sink in, for reals.
As much as I want to take credit for this genius color-rific idea, I simply can’t. It comes from the creative baking genius, inventor of the Cake Pop, Bakerella
. Yea I know, she’s incredible. I die.
Bakerella whipped up some green regular sized cupcakes for St. Patty’s Day and I decided to make them mini. When cupcakes are mini-sized, you can eat like four at a time and it feels totes fine. Especially on a holiday.
I used Bakerella's Red Velvet recipe,
which is a pretty classic version of the vibrant recipe. Simply add green food coloring instead of red and boom - ready for leprechauns! To dress up your mini cakes, add festive sprinkles and a pot of gold - aka gold cupcake liners! Pop one (or several) in your mouth to celebrate the luck of the Irish coming your way!
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Put the wet ingredients in a stand mixer. Add the dry ingredients and mix until well-combined. Add the food coloring until you get the desired amount of green-ness.
Pour into paper lined mini cupcake pans, about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Frost with your choice of frosting and decorate until your hearts content! Jackie Fo enjoys party planning, cooking, baking and wine! Visit Jackie’s blog for more ideas and also check out Jackie’s Tablespoon profile for more delish goodies.
