Here’s a really simple way to dress up store bought cupcakes for St Patricks Day this coming Monday: A rainbow of gumdrops with rolo pots of gold underneath! (PS Have you ever made rolo cookies? One of my favorites!)
A simple tip for making these…

We used brass wire to string the gum drops through in rainbow order. Trim to about 1 1/2 inches at the end and stick them into the iced cupcake.
Speaking of festive food, every St Patricks Day we make the same thing: slow cooked corned beef and cabbage, roasted root vegetables (parsnips, carrots, beets, etc), irish soda scones, and fresh lime drinks . Grasshopper pie for dessert (mint chocolate chip ice cream in an oreo cookie crust). We’ve made this menu 6 years in a row, it’s delicious!
