St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun Treasure Cupcakes

Make your favourite cupcake recipe. It can be from a box, a homemade family favourite or any un-iced cupcake. Once cooled, use a cupcake corer to remove the cupcake’s core. Fill the inside of the cupcake with sprinkles.

Tint buttercream icing green using Wilton’s Icing Colours in Green. Make sure to use only a tiny bit because the gel is highly concentrated and you need very little to produce a nice green.

Using a piping bag and a large star decorating tip. Pipe cupcakes in a circular motion to create a design.  You can top with a different kind of sprinkles or decorator’s sugar but I thought it best to keep it simple with an inside full of sprinkles.

    Thankyou for posting this awesome recipe. I already pinned it to my Board. I never heard of a cup cake core . Thankyou for the information! This idea is so clever I think I would probably put pudding in the middle. Have a Great St Patricks Day!!

    My girls mentioned that they would like to make cupcakes with treasures inside. Yours seem perfect. I just need one of the scooper tools.
