I am not Irish although my husband has Irish ancestors on his Dad’s side of his family, his paternal granddad was Irish apparently. In previous years Sam’s Smart Cookies made St Patrick’s Day cupcakes and cookies for orders but this year I have been so busy with my day job and other commitments I haven’t been able to offer my usual array of goodies. It’s a shame as earlier on this year I bought some fantastic cookie cutters made by Wilton from Ebay in America so I could make some different cookies. The cookie cutters have now been discontinued, sadly. Sadly that wasn’t to be but I am working on some new designs for next year so watch this space!
So, instead I will share my previous year’s cupcakes and cookies with you. Have a look at the photos below and see what you think!
Now here is a selection of St Patrick’s Day Cupcakes that I have made over the previous years. I want to make more designs and will add to the post as I make them.
For the Shamrock cupcake cases I bought some dark green ones as made by Wilton from Sugarshack, to find out more, please click here.
And finally here are my large cakes! I absolutely love my Shamrock shaped cake pan which I bought on Ebay from Wilton. It is perfect not only for making Good Luck cakes but for celebrating St Patricks’ Day as well. There are some fab decorating ideas, as well as tasty recipes on the Wilton website which I find very useful.
