Hi Todd,

Here is a fun thing to do for St. Patrick's day.

Use your favorite white cake base and bake some cupcakes.
Let them cool for 15 minutes and poke holes in them with a straw.
Take them out of the pans and put them on a cooling rack.
Place a cookie sheet under the rack
Mix one small box of lime jell-o with one cup of boiling water.
Pour the Jell-O over the holes with a small spoon.
Try not to get jell-o on the outside of the cupcakes.

Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
I used a very wide straw to make a bigger hole in the center.
Cut a sour gummy worm in half and place it in the hole. (This part is just for fun, but not necessary).

For the hats:

Pour a jar of green sugar crystals in a bowl.
Using a sucker stick or a skewer, dip a large marshmallow in melted white chocolate. Tap the excess off.
Spoon the sugar all over the marshmallow. Find somewhere to stick these while they dry.
I used a piece of styrofoam.
When they dry, use black icing to draw a line around the hat and a yellow confetti star for the buckle.
Frost the cupcakes in a contrasting color and draw a circle of green frosting around the cupcake for the rim.
Dip the green circle part of the cupcake in the green sugar.
Remove stick from marshmallow and add to the cupcake.

For the pots of gold:

I used green sugar because I didn't have black. Follow the same instructions for dipping and applying the sugar.
Use black icing to draw the handle and yellow icing to attached the mini M & M's. I only had skittles on hand.

A lot of steps, but the end result is worth it. I love the vibrant color of the green sugar.
