Instructions:

Step 1: Preheat your oven to the temperature on your box of cake mix.

Step 2: Prepare the cake mix batter according to the directions on the box. Preheat your oven to the temperature on your box of mix.

Step 3: Add as few or as many green Wilton Colorburst batter bits to your cake mix batter as you like. We used about half of a package.

Step 4: Place cupcake liners into a cupcake pan, and fill them about ¾ of the way full with batter and bake according to the package instructions

Step 5: Pull the cupcakes out of the oven and let them cool.

Step 6: Place a container of white whipped icing into a bowl, and add green food coloring. To get this color, we added about 20 drops of food coloring, but you can use as much or as little as you want to get the color you are looking for. Make sure you mix in the food coloring completely with a spatula.

Step 7: When completely cooled down, ice the cupcakes with the green icing. We used a starburst icing decorating tip placed in the corner of a zip lock bag to apply the icing, but you can just spread it on with a knife or spatula if you prefer.

Step 8: Sprinkle on some Wilton St. Patrick’s Day sprinkles and enjoy.
