Happy St. Patrick’s Day + Lucky Charms Cupcakes

I hope all of you had a great weekend like we did!  This was our first weekend together since we’ve been done with the big remodeling projects at our house.  We did a lot of this….

My fun project yesterday was making some festive cupcakes for the Sunday night small group we have at our house.  All it took was a box white cake mix, green food coloring, packaged frosting (the fluffy, whipped kind) and Lucky Charms.  Some desserts I can justify as healthy, but definitely not this one.  It falls in the “festive” category.

I dyed the cake batter green and when they came out of the oven, since I was in a hurry, I popped them into the freezer for 5 minutes.  They were cooled off enough at that point to frost and decorate.  Cute and easy!  It would be a fun project to do with a little kid!
