Cupcake Saturday!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! It is starting to feel like spring out here. Some flowers are popping up, the sun is out, and it's 50 degrees! Like the sign on the way to work says, "We need winter to appreciate spring."

I know we missed Cupcake Saturday last weekend. We were quite busy making wedding invitations for a customer, and didn't get to do much else. But we do have another cupcake to share with you today.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day next weekend, we made these fantastic Chocolate Irish Cream cupcakes. They are chocolate cake, filled with a chocolate Irish Cream mousse, and topped with Irish Cream buttercream. Nothing like a drink in cupcake form! The mousse is regular jello pudding made with the cream instead of milk.
I thought that the buttercream would be too much if it was totally covered, so we made some shamrocks to decorate them with instead of a giant blob of frosting. At least they were supposed to be shamrocks...

We'd also like to throw a Happy Birthday shout-out to our brother who turns 32 today!! Not that he'll see this anyway, so I can say that he sure is getting old!

Thanks for stopping by!
