Green Velvet Mini Cupcakes

As prepared by Jackie Fo,

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!
