St. Patrick's Day Surprise Inside Cupcakes


Who doesn’t love cupcakes? Obviously there are many reasons to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day but for some, it’s just all about the green beer and the food. So to combine those, we have these babies! St. Patrick’s Day Surprise Inside Cupcakes! Let the kids into the kitchen to help with decorating and bust out the green sugar,


1 Box of white cake mix
1 Container of whipped white frosting
1 Package of green Wilton Colorburst Batter Bits
1 Container Wilton Green Sugar Gem Sprinkles
Cupcake pan
Cupcake liners
Icing decorating tip (optional)


Step 1: Preheat your oven to the temperature on your box of cake mix.

Step 2: Prepare the cake mix batter according to the directions on the box. Preheat your oven to the temperature on your box of mix.

Step 3: Add as few or as many green Wilton Colorburst batter bits to your cake mix batter as you like. We used about half of a package.

Step 4: Place cupcake liners into a cupcake pan, and fill them about ¾ of the way full with batter and bake according to the package instructions.

Step 5: Pull the cupcakes out of the oven and let them cool.

Step 6: When completely cooled down, ice the cupcakes. We used a starburst icing decorating tip placed in the corner of a zip lock bag to apply the icing, but you can just spread it on with a knife or spatula if you prefer.

Step 7: Sprinkle on some Wilton Green Sugar Gem Sprinkles and enjoy!
