These cupcakes are so fun! The other day I was thinking how I hadn’t done any fun St. Patrick’s day foods yet this year so I dreamed up this fun idea! When I was young my brother would be silly on St. Patrick’s day and hide a tiny dot of green somewhere on him. That way he could trick people that he had forgotten to wear green that day! I guess the rule went if someone pinched you and you actually had green on you get to pinch them back 10 times!
So that’s how I thought up these cupcakes. I thought it’d be fun to hide green in them! So you don’t know it’s there until you bite into it. I love these cupcakes too! The bright citrus flavors are perfect to brighten up your day. It makes me feel like it’s Spring even if Spring isn’t officially here yet. The cupcakes are lemon cream and tastes so amazing. Especially with how quick it comes together. Then once they cool you fill it with the lime filling which I have colored with food coloring. Then it’s frosting with a light lemon whipped cream. It’s the perfect light touch to finish up these amazing cupcakes! This was my first time filling a cupcake and it was so easy and makes for an amazing and fun cupcake. I loved the lime filling. It adds an extra element of fun. I love that these turned out just how I had imagined it!
Filling a cupcake can be done in 4 easy steps. Once the cupcakes are cool follow these steps:
1- Using a paring knife cut out a cone shape in the middle.
2- Cut off the bottom of the small piece you have removed.
3- Fill the cupcake. I did this by using a baby spoon and holding it 1/2 an inch over the hole and let it drop it.
4- Cover the hole with the piece of cupcake and frost!
