Shamrock Shake Cupcakes!

I was at the Golden Arches the other day and guess what they have SHAMROCK SHAKES!! Yes they are here for a limited time!!  Everyone loves them so I thought I would make a Shamrock Shake Cupcake!!  And yes they are easy to make because I start with a cake mix as usual and doctor it!!!

I used a white cake mix and added some green food color and peppermint extract!  Yes that is all!  Here is how to make your own! This is what you need.

1 white cake mix and the ingredients to make the cake

green food color

peppermint extract

Mix cake according to the package directions.  Add 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract to the batter and blend.  I then took about 1/4 cup of batter for each shade of green and then tinted each bowl of batter. (3 shades)

I put some of the uncolored batter in the cup cake liner first and then layered with about a teaspoon of each shade of green,

I baked them and this is how they looked just out of the oven!!

I frosted the cupcakes with a homemade mint butter cream tinted green!  and this is what the inside looked like!!


I made some cupcakes all green too!!

What are you making for St.Patty’s day?????
