How about these for a great treat for children (and the young at heart) on St Patrick’s Day?
Leprechaun cupcakes are delicious and easy to make. In the videos below the chef talks us through how to make a ‘grown up’ version of the cupcakes, which includes ingredients such as Guinness and Baileys.
Of course if you want to make child friendly versions of the cakes it would be wise to use normal chocolate cake mix.
