Cupcakes are always the best dessert for parties and these St. Patrick’s Day cupcakes are the perfect ending to any St. Patrick’s Day party. After all, the original title was Feast of St. Patrick’s Day, and no feast is complete without dessert!
Though the St. Patricks Day holiday did begin as a religious holiday, it is now known as the day we feed our kids eggs with green food coloring and celebrate by drinking lots of beer and eating Guinness Glazed Ribs. Oh wait- that’s how we celebrate (sans the eggs!)
The rest of the world celebrates by attending parades, wearing green (or getting pinched!) and giving each other cards. WHAT? It’s true! 8 million people give St. Patrick’s Day cards. I had no idea!
Regardless of what you’re doing on St. Patrick’s Day, these cupcakes will make everyone smile. Note that a few of these desserts contain alcohol so are for adults only. As if we don’t consume enough alcohol while we’re celebrating the death of good old St. Patrick.
