leprechaun cupcakes


....so it's almost st patty's day!....woohoo!....love the color green and how everything turns that color around this time....and since the gnomes cupcakes came out really cute....figured i'd give leprechauns a go.....!

....the leprechauns are totally edible and are made with a bunch of candies....the hats are green candy melt/wafers and a mini marshmallow....."pipe" a circle...then add the marshmallow while still wet....once dry dip the rest in green candy melt (much easier said then done because they are tiny!).....


....the rest of the body is made from a hershey's kiss and a vanilla tootsie roll....cut off the tip of the kiss to use as the body and nuke the tootsie roll for about 10 seconds in the microwave to make it soft....then roll into a ball for the head.....attach the head to the body with some candy melt.....once hardened dip the body into green candy melt....


....with edible food writer add a black band on the hat and a sprinkle decoration.....and you get some little leprechaun hats....

...you can also see them made here at munchkin munchies made from mini marshmallows and mini oreos and added to granola....so very cute!!....


....add the orange beard/hair with orange candy melt....and while still wet add the hats....the rest of the detail is edible candy writer, sprinkle "buckles", and nose/arms are candy melt too....

....and you get a little tiny leprechaun crew....ready to cause some ruckus.....


....add to some cupcakes with some grass frosting....4-leaf clovers and some gold sprinkles since they must have dropped their pot's of gold...you know leprechauns are really clumsy.....(i thought about doing some pots of gold....but kinda lost the motivation!).....

....happy week before st patty's day.....!...and if you can't catch yourself a leprechaun....just make some for yourself....!...have a super week!
