Top o' the marnin' to ya! Are you decked out in green for St. Patrick's Day yet? Truth be told, I'm not either. But these little cupcakes are. I made these cupcakes for a small group of friends to share. One of these friends will celebrate their birthday on St. Patrick's Day. Happy Birthday!
To begin, pipe some white frosting onto the cupcakes in a flat swirl. I used a Wilton #12 tip because it was the biggest round tip that I had. If you have a bigger one, go for it.
Next, I used a little viva smoothing on them to make a flat surface. You can still see a bit of the swirl, but that's ok.
Now it's time for the green. Using a Wilton #6 tip, I piped a tear drop shape, off center.
Pipe another tear drop right next to the first one and you've made a heart.
Rinse and repeat.....I mean make another one.
Make one more, only this time extend the last tear drop all the way down to make a stem. Easy peasy, right?
I made quite a few.
But I like this picture better. Something happened with the color on the other one and I can't seem to fix it. Oh well. Happy St. Patrick's Day...or Happy Birthday, or both, whichever the case may be.
