Mini St Patricks Day Cupcakes

I have been so inspired to make cupcakes the past few weeks.  I love the freedom and creativity to make different flavours, colours and tastes.  These mini cupcakes are perfect for any occasion but dressed up with green roses they are the perfect dessert for a St. Patrick’s Day gathering.
