Whoever said that red is the only color for velvet cupcakes has definitely never tried green velvet cupcakes! Following the green theme of St. Patrick’s Day, these Green Velvet Cupcakes take a bit more time and effort, calling for a range of ingredients such as all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, buttermilk, green food coloring and more. But these Green Velvet Shamrock Cupcakes will definitely be the stars of your event, making it worth the investment.

3.    Mint Oreo Balls
