Lucky Cupcakes {Happy St. Patty's}


I'm posting a holiday treat before the actual holiday....It's a miracle!
These are dark chocolate cupcakes with creme de menthe frosting.
The little bows and shamrocks are made from gumpaste and then lightly brushed with edible Luster Dust.




To make the shamrocks:
-Roll a small amount of gumpaste into a ball.
-Put ball onto working surface & press down until you have a nice, plump disc.
-Use a toothpick to notch about a 1/3 of the way in. Repeat process on the opposite side of the first notch. Then repeat on top and bottom of the disc.
-Pick up the disc & roll the toothpick between each notch (rounding the petals a bit).
-Add a small tapered gumpaste rope for the stem.
TA DA!
