Happy St Patrick's Day Cupcake Gift Box

A customer from Brisbane wanted to say Happy St Patrick's Day to her brother in law who lives here in Mackay & what better way than with a yummy cupcake gift box!

They were heaps of fun to make, I just love making specific themed cupcake toppers like this.

So this is what I designed & made, it features leprechauns hats, pots of gold on a rainbow, clovers, Irish flags & pints of Guinness all made out of marshmallow fondant.

The cake for the cupcakes was 'Midnight Delight' dark chocolate mud cake (I did suggest a Guinness & chocolate cake in keeping with the Irish theme but she thought that her sister would prefer straight chocolate) topped off with a generous amount of divine Baileys Irish Cream buttercream (which of course I had to tint a pale green colour).

Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!


  1. These cupcakes are fabulous! Love all the designs. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  2. Wow, these are great! Particularly love the hats...

  3. I love these so cute! the pot of gold is genius! I'm making some for my sister for her work they work at an Irish drive in. Should be fun it will be my 1st time using fondant- kinda nervous:)

  4. Thanks for the awesome cupcakes for my Irish brother in law... he was very impressed and loved the themed toppers! You're a champion, Angel : )

  5. Thanks guys :

    So happy to here they liked them Angel.
